In October 2012, FSA in conjunction with our partners began hosting a series of webinars introducing important questions about how CRP and CRP practices effect environmental benefits and providing the results of studies monitoring and assessing the CRP and CRP practices. Past webinars are recorded and are available for viewing at the links below. Upcoming webinars are posted as they are scheduled.
