The STAR Pay-for-Performance (PfP) Program allows various sectors of
the food, fiber and fuel value chains to incentivize conservation through
the use of STAR. Within a company’s desired geography, incentives
are offered to producers that improve their fields’ STAR Rating across
growing seasons or maintain a maximum 5-STAR Rating. See the Engagement
Guide below and contact STAR to get involved in a PfP program.
