With: Ivy Reynolds, Grassland CRP Program Manager, USDA Farm Service Agency; Patrick Lechner, Chief Specialist, Price Support and Conservation Programs, USDA Farm Service Agency Nebraska; and Elliott Dennis, Assistant Professor, UNL Agricultural Economics.
The Grassland Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) allows farmers and ranchers to enroll existing grassland into CRP and continue to work the land through haying and grazing. Since 2019, Nebraska farmers and ranchers have enrolled a large number of acres into grassland CRP. This webinar will focus on highlighting what the program is, how it works, and review answers to frequently asked questions about the program. Participants will leave with the understanding and tools necessary to evaluate if and how they could enroll.
