FSA Announces CRP Information Meetings in Iowa
Des Moines, Iowa, March 1, 2012: John R. Whitaker, State Executive Director for USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Iowa, announced that FSA will conduct several Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) informational meetings across the state. Iowa currently has 1,658,024 acres enrolled in CRP with an estimated 231,672 acres expiring September 30, 2012. A General CRP signup is scheduled to begin March 12, 2012 and end April 6, 2012. Environmentally desirable land devoted to certain conservation practices may be enrolled in CRP at any time under continuous sign-up. Producers wanting to re-enroll continuous CRP practices expiring September 30, 2012, must do so prior to contract expiration.
Landowners with expiring CRP land or land that is not currently enrolled in CRP are encouraged to attend an informational meeting.
“Our local county offices have done a great job scheduling meetings throughout the state,” said Whitaker. “This will give interested participants more options to attend a meeting at a convenient location.”
