Habitat Leasing through Grassland CRP

April 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MDT

WWW3 (6)

Join Western Landowners Alliance and national experts to learn about habitat leasing through Grassland Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). Grassland CRP is a voluntary, working lands program managed through the Farm Service Agency (FSA) that contracts with producers and operators to protect grassland, including rangeland, pastureland, and wildlife habitat while also maintaining the areas as grazing lands. In return for maintaining the grazing lands according to an NRCS-approved management plan, the FSA pays producers annual rental payments and cost share assistance while allowing livestock production activities to continue. FSA bases rental rates on 75 percent of the cash rent data provided by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) plus a climate- smart practice incentive. While the signup period has not yet been announced, the exact rental rates and program details for each state and county will be available when the sign up period opens this spring. During the webinar, we will cover who qualifies, how to apply, how the program works, what is required of the landowner or producer and general program details.

Our expert panelists include:
  • Patrick Lewis, FSA Acting Grassland CRP Program Manager;
  • Katrina Thompson, NRCS National CSP Program Manager;
  • Chris Robinson, Wyoming Landowner and CEO and co-owner of The Ensign Group
  • Mathew Stark, California Producer
