The acreage signup deadline for continuous Conservation Reserve Program is coming up. USDA Undersecretary Bill Northey says the enrollment deadline is Friday August 17. “Continuous enrollment CRP is land that if it meets the qualifying characteristics that are needed for one of the programs in continuous enrollment, that may be a buffer strip or grass waterway or other kinds of continuous enrollment practices, that land is qualified if it meets the standards that are set up according to the program.” Northey reminds farmers there is no general CRP signup this year. However, extensions of current contracts are available.
