USDA is urging producers to maximize their environmental benefits and make cost-effective offers when enrolling in a four-week Conservation Reserve Program starting May 20th. Secretary Vilsack says this program is important to protect environmentally sensitive lands and ensure sustainability of natural waters. He encourages producers to look into CRP’s other enrollment opportunities offered on a continuous, non-competitive, sign-up basis. Sign-up will end on June 14th for this four-week session. The restart for sign-up for continuous CRP will end on September 30th.
