Nebraska FSA Sending Out CRP Rental Payments

Nebraska officials are distributing Conservation Reserve Program annual rental payments to participants this week.  State Farm Service Agency Executive Director Dan Steinkruger says those payments were to have gone out earlier this month but were delayed by the federal shut down. He says Nebraska has about 900,000 acres out of the 25 million nationally enrolled in the program.

Steinkruger says the amount of acres enrolled in CRP have dropped with more crops going back into production but the program is still popular with many groups ag and non ag alike.

He says CRP has been around since 1986 and involves things like permanent vegetation and trees and that type of thing to protect the environment. He says the processing schedule is a bit different in each county so anyone interested in the program should contact their local USDA Service Center office.
