USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) is hosting a webinar to share details and answer questions about the new Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) Soil Health and Income Protection Program (SHIPP) pilot. This pilot program enables farmers in Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota to receive payments for planting perennial cover for conservation use for three to five years. The signup began March 30 and ends August 21, 2020. The 30-minute webinar, hosted by South Dakota FSA, will share basic information about SHIPP benefits, eligibility, and rental rates, as well as provide time for questions and answers.
