Deadline for CRP general sign-up ends April 6

The USDA Conservation Reserve Program is reminding farmers (CRP) general sign-up 43 ends on Friday, April 6, 2012. Producers who want to offer eligible land for CRP’s competitive general sign-up may enroll at the Farm Service Agency (FSA) county office where their farm records are maintained.

CRP is a voluntary program available to agricultural producers to help them use environmentally sensitive land for conservation benefits. Producers enrolled in CRP plant long-term, resource-conserving covers to improve the quality of water, control soil erosion and develop wildlife habitat. In return, USDA provides participants with rental payments and cost-share assistance. Contract duration is between 10 and 15 years. Producers with expiring contracts and producers with environmentally sensitive land are encouraged to evaluate their options under CRP.
