CRP and Conservation Program Meetings
Landowner meetings to discuss CRP options and conservation programs will be held later this month in area counties. The programs are presented by Pheasants Forever/ Quail Forever, the Missouri Department of Conservation, the Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Farm Service Agency.
The programs are designed to provide landowners information on the many options of CRP and other conservation programs and will highlight the updated rental rates. Information on field eligibility and NRCS programs will also be presented. Those interested in stopping erosion, increasing habitat for wildlife or learning about financial assistance for conservation efforts, are encouraged to talk to your local Farm Bill Wildlife Biologist or attend the meetings.
