Beginning May 13, 2013, the USDA-Farm Service Agency will be accepting new offers and approving new contracts under CRP's Continuous, CREP, FWP, and SAFE signups.
The following practices are available under continuous signup: CP-8A Grass Waterways Non-easement; CP-9 Shallow Water Areas for Wildlife; CP-21 Filter Strips, CP-22 Riparian Buffers, CP-29 Marginal Pastureland and Wildlife Habitat Buffer, CP-23 Wetland Restoration; CP-33 Habitat Buffers for Upland Birds; and CP-38 State Acres for Wildlife, and CP-42 Pollinator Habitat.
Landowners enrolled in the CRP program receive annual rental payments and cost-share assistance to establish long-term, resource conserving covers on eligible farmland. Land that is not currently enrolled in CRP can be offered during sign-up if all eligibility requirements are met. Expiring CRP continuous contracts can be re-enrolled with an enrollment date of October 1, 2013.
The authority for this sign-up will end September 30, 2013.
