FSA-Logan County Colorado: Come Learn about the Conservation Reserve Program!

The Logan County FSA Office will be hosting a producer meeting on January 8, 2020 at the Logan County Extension Service, 508 S 10th Ave, #1, Sterling, Colorado beginning at 1:00 pm. Producers are encouraged to attend this meeting to learn more about the CRP program including what land is eligible and ways that this program might be beneficial to their agricultural operation.

CRP is a federally-funded voluntary program that contracts with agricultural producers so environmentally sensitive agricultural land is not farmed or ranched, but instead devoted to conservation benefits. CRP participants establish long-term, resource-conserving plant species, such as approved grasses or trees (known as “covers”) to control soil erosion, improve water quality and develop wildlife habitat. In return, FSA provides participants with yearly rental payments and cost-share assistance.

Signup for both general and continuous CRP opened December 9, 2019.  This is the first general signup since the 49th CRP general signup, which began on December 1, 2015, and continued through February 26, 2016.

Persons with disabilities who require accommodations to attend or participate in this meeting should contact Sherry Lederhos at 970-522-7440, ext. 2 or Federal Relay Service at 1-800-877-8339.
