WASHINGTON -- Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack reminded farmers and ranchers that the U.S. Department of Agriculture that the last day to sign up for Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) general signup ends Friday, June 14. Vilsack also announced the restart of signup for continuous CRP, including the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program, State Acres for Wildlife Enhancement Initiative, the Highly Erodible Land Initiative, the Grassland Restoration Initiative, the Pollinator Habitat Initiative, and other related initiatives. Signup for continuous CRP that began May 13 will continue through Monday, Sept. 30.

Producers enrolled in CRP plant long-term, resource-conserving covers to improve the quality of water, control soil erosion. and develop wildlife habitat. In return, the U.S. Department of Agriculture provides participants with rental payments and cost-share assistance. Contract duration is between 10 and 15 years.

CRP soil rental rates for non-irrigated cropland were updated this year to better reflect location and market conditions. A nationwide cap was placed on the maximum amount that may be paid per acre for the general signup. Taken together, these steps help ensure that taxpayer dollars are spent in a fiscally responsible manner while producing the maximum environmental benefits for each dollar spent.

For more information on CRP and other Farm Service Agency programs, visit the local Farm Service Agency service center located at 1106 10th St. (U.S. 181) in Floresville or www.fsa.usda.gov.
