COLLEGE STATION -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency Texas Executive Director Juan M. Garcia announced Aug. 29 that, in response to drought conditions, the National Farm Service Agency office has extended the deadline for emergency haying use of Conservation Reserve Program acres for all Texas counties that are currently approved for emergency haying.

Emergency haying of land enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program has been extended through Friday, Sept. 30.

“Eligible producers who are interested in emergency haying of CRP [Conservation Reserve Program] must request approval before haying eligible acreage,” Garcia said. “Producers must also obtain a modified conservation plan from the Natural Resources Conservation Service that includes haying requirements,” he said.

There will be a 25 percent Conservation Reserve Program payment reduction for conservation reserve acres used for haying under these emergency provisions.

Upon approval of emergency haying, producers must leave at least 50 percent of each field or contiguous field unhayed for wildlife. If a county is eligible for emergency haying and grazing, the same Conservation Reserve Program acreage cannot be both hayed and/or grazed at the same time. For example, if 50 percent of a field or contiguous field is hayed, the remaining unhayed 50 percent cannot be grazed; it must remain unhayed and ungrazed for wildlife.

For more information on emergency haying of the Conservation Reserve Program acres, contact the Wilson County Farm Service Agency office located at 1106 10th St. (U.S. 181) in Floresville, or call 830-393-3411.
