The Farm Service Agency recently updated rental rates and created new incentives for producers and landowners to enroll environmentally sensitive agricultural land into perennial cover. The land would be enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program for 10-15 years. Participants receive annual rental payments, which have been adjusted this year, and 50 percent cost share to establish the perennial cover. The deadline for the General CRP sign-up is July 23, 2023.
