CRP signup begins March 12

Prairie State Outdoors

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will conduct a four-week Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) general signup, beginning on March 12 and ending on April 6.

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, cover 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.

FSA administers CRP, while technical support functions are provided by:

USDA’s Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS);
USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture;
State forestry agencies;
Local soil and water conservation districts;
Private sector providers of technical assistance.

CRP General Sign-up

For information on upcoming sign-ups, contact your local FSA office. To find your local office, visit FSA’s Web site at: http://offices.sc.egov.usda.gov/locator/app?state=us&agency=fsa

CRP Continuous Sign-up

Environmentally desirable land devoted to certain conservation practices may be enrolled at any time under CRP continuous sign-up. Certain eligibility requirements still apply, but offers are not subject to competitive bidding. Further information on CRP continuous sign-up is available in the FSA fact sheet “Conservation Reserve Program Continuous Sign-up.”
