Bruce Nelson, Executive Director of USDA’s Farm Service Agency in Montana, announced Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has set general signup for the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) to begin on March 14, and continue through April 15.
During the signup period, Montana farmers and ranchers may offer eligible land for CRP’s competitive general signup at their county Farm Service Agency (FSA) office.
“Over the past 25 years, CRP’s benefits have continued to grow — cleaner water, improved air quality, better habitat for wildlife and a huge reduction in soil erosion,” Nelson said. “This announcement reinforces this administration’s dedication to help Montana farmers and ranchers conserve natural resources on their land.”
