CRP Enrollment Begins

Posted: Updated:
        Today marks the start of the CRP sign-up in North Dakota. 

    The Conservation Reserve Program better known as CRP, is a voluntary program which pays producers to let their land sit idle to restore the soil and create a wildlife habitat.
    In Burleigh County roughly 30-thousand acres are enrolled in the program.
    A number that has been shrinking for the past five years due to high commodity prices.

(Jean Schnoehard / Burleigh Co. FSA Director) "We have had some people buy their contracts out to put back into crop production. It's more targeted to priority practices, small plantings, tree plantings, That's what we are seeing a lot more of. when CRP first came we had these 100 acre contracts of grass. We don't have a lot of those anymore."

     The sign up for the Transition Incentives Program better known as TIP also started today.
    TIP provides opportunities for new farmers and ranchers by teaming them up with retired producers.
