Permalink USDA Suspends CRP Enrollment Acceptance Temporarily

USDA logoUSDA has announced that it is accepting all pending continuous Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) enrollment offers that were made from May 4, 2017, through September 30, 2017, but it will suspend acceptance of most new offers until later in the 2018 fiscal year to review CRP allocation levels and to avoid exceeding the statutory cap of 24 million acres. Meanwhile, USDA is declining Pollinator Habitat Initiative offers because the program has met its acreage enrollment goal. USDA will continue to accept eligible offers for state-specific Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) and CRP Grasslands enrollment.
