CRP & WRP Projects come to an END

Postby feathhd » Tue Oct 02, 2012 12:39 pm

As of today, October 1st, all new CRP and WRP enrollments have ground to a halt because of the U.S. House of Representative’s failure to act on a Farm Bill this year.

According to Wikipedia, Black Monday in the world of finance refers to Monday October 19, 1987, when stock markets around the world crashed, shedding a huge value in a very short time. In the world of wildlife conservation, October 1, 2012 can equally be referenced as Black Monday. As of midnight last night, the 2008 Farm Bill officially ended. Beginning today, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s ability to enroll landowners in new CRP or new WRP contracts has been paralyzed. Additionally, 6.5 Million acres of Conservation Reserve Program lands expired last night. Again, there are no current options for re-enrollment or sign-up in alternative programs.
