USDA Announces New General Sign Up For CRP in Mid March

Sat, 29 Jan 2011 12:58:53 CST

USDA Announces New General Sign Up For CRP in Mid March The next general signup for the Conservation Reserve Program will begin on March 14 and continue through April 15, 2011. This is the second consecutive year that USDA has offered a general CRP signup. In making the announcement at the National Pheasant Fest 2011 in Omaha, Nebraska, Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack pointed out that - over the past 25 years, support for CRP has grown thanks to strong backing from farmers, ranchers, conservationists, hunters, fishermen and other outdoor sports enthusiasts.



Through CRP, eligible landowners receive annual rental payments and cost-share assistance to establish long-term, resource conserving covers on eligible farmland. Land can be enrolled for a period of up to 15 years. Current CRP participants with contracts expiring this fall may make new contract offers. Contracts awarded under this signup are scheduled to become effective October 1, 2011.



The Secretary noted, - not only has CRP contributed to the national effort to improve water and air quality, it has preserved habitat for wildlife, and prevented soil erosion by protecting the most sensitive areas including those prone to flash flooding and runoff. In addition to the general sign-up, CRP's continuous sign-up program will be ongoing.


Farm Service Agency Administrator Jonathan Coppess spoke with reporters by phone from Omaha- click on the LISTEN BAR below for his comments about this latest general sign up that starts in mid March.
