CRP enrollments, extensions deadline April 14

Posted by Nicole


WASHINGTON - USDA’s Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) reminds Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) participants with contracts expiring on Sept. 30, 2007, that they have until Friday, April 14, 2006, to apply for re-enrollment and extension.

In August 2004, President Bush announced his commitment to re-enroll or extend certain contracts scheduled to expire between 2007 and 2010, and to fully use the CRP’s 39.2 million acre enrollment authority. CCC received more than 5,000 comments from the public in response to a Federal Register notice and conducted a public meeting in June 2005.

In September 2005, Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns announced that CCC would begin to implement the President’s proposed actions in early 2006.Beginning in February 2006, Farm Service Agency (FSA) county offices sent letters to CRP participants with contracts expiring Sept. 30, 2007. FSA notified those contract holders of their contract status and the April 14, 2006 deadline to accept the opportunity to extend or re-enroll for the contract length offered. The letters asked contract holders to confirm their interest in a re-enrolled or extended contract subject to a compliance check.
