Conservation Reserve Program Workshop open to public


An informative and interactive Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) Workshop is to be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15, in the Community Room at the Seneca Free Library in Seneca. Free and open to the public!

Hosted by Pheasants Forever and with presentation by Mandie Lang, Farm Bill Wildlife Biologist for Pheasants Forever, with guest Maegan Winkler, CRP Program Technician for the Farm Service Agency. There will be time for questions with the group after the presentation, and individuals may remain after to ask questions. This is a great time to learn about the program if you are unfamiliar, or get questions answered if you are planning on re-enrolling your land. 

The Conservation Reserve Program, or CRP, is a federally funded on-farm conservation program made possible through the Federal Farm Bill, introduced in 1985. Land that has been in cash crop production is eligible to be converted into native prairie and rented by the government for a yearly payment in addition to cost-share for startup expenses. Any acreage, small or large, can be fitted to a practice.

Whole fields, unproductive land, hard to farm areas, wet spots and other odd areas are excellent candidates for CRP. Most CRP fields are planted to gorgeous native grasses and forbs, and serve as exceptional wildlife and pollinator habitat, provide innumerable benefits to soil and water quality, and are great ways for people to connect with nature.

Come out to this workshop to learn more about eligibility for the program, what types of practices are involved, and how you can implement CRP on your property.

Doughnuts and coffee will be available. No registration is required, as this is a free workshop, but if you have any questions, comments or would like to know more, please contact Mandie Lang with Pheasants Forever at 785-336-2164 or
