In response to the recent announcement of Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) General Sign-up 43, multiple CRP Landowner Workshops will be held throughout the month of March to inform producers and conservationists about Conservation Reserve Program General Sign-up 43. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn from biologists how to improve the chances of their lands being accepted into the CRP Program. Information will also be presented informing producers on how conserving marginal lands through CRP can prove mutually beneficial for wildlife and agriculture production.
