CRP is a voluntary program that helps agricultural producers use environmentally sensitive land for conservation benefits. Producers enrolled in CRP plant long-term, resource-conserving covers to control soil erosion, improve water and air quality and develop wildlife habitat. In return, FSA provides participants with rental payments and cost-share assistance. Contract dura­tion is between 10 to 15 years. Accepted contracts for CRP signup 49 will begin October 1, 2016.

Land that is not currently en­rolled in CRP may be offered for enrollment during CRP signup 49. In addition, CRP participants with contracts expiring on September 30, 2016, may submit offers.

To submit CRP offers, producers must visit their local FSA office.

To be eligible for CRP enroll­ment, a producer must have owned or operated the land for at least 12 months prior to the end of the CRP signup period. See your local County FSA (Farm Service Agency) office for some exceptions.

Eligible land must be cropland (including field margins) that is planted, or considered planted, to an agricultural commodity four of the six crop years from 2008 to 2013, and be physically and legally capable of being planted (no planting restrictions due to an easement or other legally binding instrument) in a normal manner to an agricultural com­modity. Land currently in CRP may not have trees on it, unless the trees were an approved CRP practice.

For more information on CRP, contact a local FSA office, or visit FSA’s website at www.fsa. usda.gov.
