The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) has been authorized to resume as of May 13 for continuous CRP practices. Filter strips, field borders, field windbreaks, pollinator habitat, riparian buffer tree plantings and grass waterways are just a few of the continuous CRP practices.
A general CRP signup for those landowners with highly erodible cropland will open May 20 and run through June 14.
Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and/or Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) staff will be making field visits to determine eligibility for re-enrollment on expiring CRP contracts.
For more information on CRP, Please contact the Iroquois County USDA Office at (815) 432-3946.
