The good people at WRAM radio have and continue to be very strong supporters of Warren County agriculture and in particular our local FSA office. Listen in on Wednesday mornings!
CRP Continuous Signup
Continuous Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) signup allows producers to enroll eligible acreages in practices such as waterways and filter strips. This could be of particular interest after this year’s heavy rains and erosion. The most attractive part of this program is the cost-share assistance available to install the practices. Cost-share assistance of 50% is available. An additional incentive program allows an additional 40% cost-share. For example a waterway project would have a 90% cost share rate with 10 years of annual payments. Contact either FSA or NRCS for more information.
USDA benefits that require Conservation Plan Compliance include DCP payments, CRP rental payments, LDP’s, Commodity loans, and crop insurance. Heavy rains and less than desirable harvest conditions may have you wanting to perform some type of tillage. Please make sure you understand the requirements of these plans and check with NRCS about potential changes.
