Conservation Reserve Program signups begin May 20

The signup period for the 45th General CRP Signup will be May 20 to June 14, Ray County FSA Director Jarrell Foreman said.
All offered acres for this signup must be clear of brush, undesirable vegetation and ditches (erosion). Any maintenance issues must be addressed prior to offering the acreage. If a field visit is required, interested parties are requested to contact the FSA office at 776-5861, ext. 2.
Also, if a producer is going to farm portions of a field and new field boundaries must be established, FSA can complete this prior to signup.With that in mind, producers are asked to contact the office as soon as possible.
Existing CRP acres set to expire Sept. 30  are eligible, as well as any new acres to be offered if they meet the eligibility requirements. Soil Rental Rates have increased also. Farmers should contact the office if they’re interested in offering acres into CRP or if need additional information.
