From the LA Times in April.

WOODLAND, Calif. - During the past two decades, the federal 
government has built the nation's largest conservation program for 
private lands by spending billions of dollars to encourage farmers 
to protect land that is prone to erosion and important to 
wildlife.
Now the Conservation Reserve Program is about to shrink by 
millions of acres as part of the Bush administration's plans for 
stimulating corn production for ethanol and reducing dependence on 
foreign oil.
