USDA’s Farm Service Agency is opening up enrollment in the Conservation Reserve Program. Administrator Richard Fordyce explains, “We’ve got special
announcement, I think, that a lot of folks have been anxiously awaiting and
that is the announcement that we are going to initiate sign-up for both
continuous and general CRP beginning on December 9th.”
Farm Bill lifted the cap of 22 million acres, the amount enrolled today, to 27 million.
enrollment is the first for general CRP in four years, and Minnesota FSA
director Joe Martin reminds landowners it’s a competitive signup.
“It is a bidding
process so you’ll have to, basically, say how much you’re willing to accept.”
CRP applications can be submitted December 9th through February 28, 2020.
