LITTLE ROCK (KATV) — From March 4 through March 29, a conservation program focused on making sure farmers and agricultural producers have the tools necessary to maintain their land has opened its registration to the public.

The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) aims to provide farmers the information needed to maintain their personal environment and also the wildlife habitat.

“The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has a long track record of fostering and supporting the vital relationship between agriculture and conservation, and the Conservation Reserve program helps our producers be good stewards of their lands and boost wildlife populations at the same time,” said Doris Washington, Farm Service Agency state executive director in Arkansas.

Powered by the 2018 Farm Bill, this program was made possible to address climate change, protect wildlife habitat, and sustain a level of clean water.

“These efforts demonstrate the power of USDA’s Farm Bill conservation programs to conserve wildlife habitat, protect clean water and address climate change in partnership with farmers, ranchers, forest owners and conservation organizations across the country,” said Washington.

The Farm Bill which was previously known as the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 was extended on November 16, 2023 by President Joe Biden. It will remain valid through September 30, 2024, according to a press release.

Farmers and also those who own property will have access to a wide array of conservation opportunities through the program.
