Conservation Reserve ProgramThe February 28 deadline for open enrollment in the USDA Farm Service Agency Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) is fast approaching in a year that will feature one of the largest program acreages ever offered to landowners in the United States. CRP allows farmers and landowners to support pollinator habitat while also receiving rental payments and cost-share assistance.

Farmers for Monarchs has put together a helpful “General CRP Cheat Sheet” to guide those who are interested in the program through the details. Click here to view this resource. It includes information on the general CRP signup, continuous signup, important dates, which programs benefit pollinators and how farmers and landowners can increase their chances of enrollment.
