Conservation Reserve Program Enrollment and Re-enrollment Open

USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) has announced that farmers and ranchers with expiring Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) contracts may now re-enroll in certain CRP continuous signup practices or, if eligible, select a one-year contract extension. The extension is being offered to existing CRP participants with expiring contracts of 14 years or less that have practices not eligible for re-enrollment under this CRP signup. FSA also is accepting offers from those who want to enroll in CRP for the first time; signup for CRP runs from June 3 to August 23, 2019. This year’s CRP continuous signup includes such practices as grass waterways, filter strips, riparian buffers, wetland restoration, and others.
