North Dakota FSA announces 43rd CRP signup results

In North Dakota, 190 acres were accepted into CRP. That’s out of the 3.9 million acres offered nationwide that the USDA announced they will accept under the FSA’s 43rd Conservation Reserve Program general signup.

 “2,017 out of 3,513 CRP offers were accepted, which is right around 57% percent,” North Dakota State Executive Director Aaron Krauter said. “County offices across North Dakota are preparing written notifications to everybody who submitted offers. Please give the offices a few days to process those notification letters and get them in the mail.”

USDA selected offers for enrollment based on an Environmental Benefits Index (EBI) comprised of five environmental factors plus cost. The five environmental factors are wildlife enhancement, water quality, soil erosion, enduring benefits and air quality. The minimum selected EBI level for Signup 43 was 209.

Enrollment of the new acres will allow USDA to continue important targeting of CRP acres through continuous signup initiatives including those announced earlier this year for highly-erodible land, as well as grasslands and wetlands while also maintaining and enhancing the significant benefits the program has already achieved. The two continuous signup initiatives announced earlier this year will target an additional 1.75 million acres nationwide.

As of April 2012, North Dakota had 2.39 million acres enrolled in CRP. After accounting for the newly accepted contracts, more than 645,000 acres are scheduled to come out of CRP in North Dakota this year.

“We would like to remind those producers whose Signup 43 CRP offers were not accepted that they can explore additional options available to them under the Continuous CRP Signup,” Krauter said.
