Sign Up for Grassland Conservation Reserve Program by June 28

USDA announced that agricultural producers and private landowners can sign up for the Grassland Conservation Reserve Program (Grassland CRP) through June 28, 2024. Grassland CRP is a voluntary working lands conservation program that enables participants to conserve grasslands and provide important conservation benefits for wildlife, soil health, and carbon sequestration, all while continuing most grazing and haying practices. FSA provides participants with rental payments and cost-share assistance. Contract duration is 10 or 15 years. The program emphasizes support for grazing operations, plant and animal biodiversity, and grassland and land containing shrubs and forbs under the greatest threat of conversion.
