Conservation Reserve Program (CRP)

The Conservation Reserve Program 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.

The Farm Service Agency is holding General CRP sign-up From Dec. 1, 2015 to Feb. 26, 2016.

Landowners can learn how they can increase income with flexible programs that fit their land and operations during a series of meetings in late 2015 and early 2016. These meetings are sponsored by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and Pheasants Forever. Meeting topics include:

  • Free one-on-one technical assistance
  • Updated annual soil rental rates
  • Cost-share opportunities
  • Other practices and programs
