Reminder: Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) Grasslands enrollment now open

Farmers and ranchers may now apply to enroll their grasslands in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) Grasslands program. The signup runs through May 15, 2020. “Through this CRP Grasslands signup, farmers and ranchers can protect grasslands, rangelands and pastures, while maintaining the land as working grazing lands,” said Richard Fordyce, Administrator of USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA). “The program emphasizes support for grazing operations and plant and animal biodiversity, while protecting land under the greatest threat of conversion or development.”
