General Signup Open June 14 – July 23, 2021
The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) is a federal program overseen by the United States Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency (FSA) that pays a yearly rental payment in exchange for farmers removing environmentally sensitive land from agricultural production and planting species that will improve environmental quality.
Landowners can learn how CRP can increase their income with flexible programs that fit their land and operations by visiting their local USDA Field Office or talking with a Nebraska Game and Parks Commission or Pheasants Forever biologist. Biologists provide:
- Free one-on-one technical assistance
- Updated annual soil rental rates
- 3-10% incentive per acre based on practice
- 10% soil rental rate increase
- Increased cost-share opportunities
- Other practices and programs
