During this sign-up period, farmers and ranchers may offer eligible land through the local Farm Service Agency county office. "This is the 25th Anniversary of the Conservation Reserve Program. CRP has shown great environmental improvements during that time," said Hennen. "We want all interested farmers and ranchers to contact the local FSA office to find out how they might offer eligible land for this pro- gram which preserves the soil, cleans water and restores habitat for wildlife." CRP is a voluntary program that allows environmentally sensitive land be used for conservation bene- fits. Producers accepted in the pro- gram plant long-term, resource con- se A 1 en 15 serving vegetative covers in exchange for, rental payments, cost share and technical assistance. By_ reducing water runoff and sedimentation, CRP protects groundwater and improves the condition of lakes, rivers, ponds and streams. The vegetative covers offers improved wildlife habitat, mak- ing it a major contributor to the increase in wildlife population. FSA evaluates and ranks eligible land offered for CRP using the Environmental Benefits Index (EBI). The EBI review looks at five environ- mental factors: wildlife, water, soil, air and enduring benefits, as well as cost. The land is ranked based on which would offer the greatest envi- ronmental benefits. In addition to this general sign-up, CRP's continuous sign-up program is ongoing. Continuous acres represent the most environmentally desirable and sensitive land. For more informa- tion about CRP, visit 8 ainst nville will be on display. There will also be a table with resources for families who want to be the healthiest and strongest families they can be as well as information for those of us who want to help them.
