North Dakota Farm Service Agency Executive Director Marcy Svenningsen says this enrollment includes both new and expiring Conservation Reserve Program offers. Even with high commodity prices, Svenningsen feels there’s still value in putting land into CRP. “The FSA introduced a program which includes higher rental payments and more incentives for farmers to take up environmental practices so there are things they can do to increase the value of that CRP. Marginal land can be put into this program if you’re not willing to put up with the higher input costs.” The deadline for CRP applications is April 7, 2023.
