Conservation Reserve Program signups
General signup for the Conservation Reserve Program will continue through April 15. CRP is a voluntary program for agricultural producers to use environmentally sensitive land for conservation benefits. During the signup period, farmers and ranchers may offer eligible land for CRP’s competitive general signup at the Farm Service Agency office. Land currently not enrolled in CRP may be offered in this signup provided all eligibility requirements are met. Additionally, current CRP participants with contracts expiring this fall may make new contract offers. Contracts awarded under this signup are scheduled to become effective Oct. 1.
In addition to the general sign-up, CRP’s continuous sign-up program will be ongoing. Continuous acres represent the most environmentally desirable and sensitive land.
