South Dakota general CRP sign up to be held May 5-30 The Farm Service Agency Office in Huron, SD has announced that a general Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) sign-up will be held May 5 to May 30. Game, Fish and Parks Farm Bill Coordinator Bill Smith said CRP has a multitude of benefits for producers. However, to get enrolled, a producer has to receive enough points in the Environmental Benefits Index (EBI) to compete on a National basis. "Highly erodible land, land in cer- tain watersheds in western South Dakota and all eastern South Dakota cropland are eligible for enrollment," Smith said. To score enough EBI points to get accepted into CRP, Smith said pro- ducers should consider selecting a 50- point cover under practices CP-2 and CP-4D. Producers offering bids with 40-point cover may also score enough points, but need to score additional points under other factors in order to be competitive. Smith said the 26th CRP sign up is the first general CRP since 2000, and will be very competitive. Producers should make sure they offer a bid with the most EBI points they can estab- lish. Additionally, some portions of the state are within defined water quality and wildlife zones, and land within these designated areas can score additional points. Because some of the EBI points are different from the last general CRP sign-up, previously unsuccessful bidders should try again, they might be able to score higher under the new system. Producers familiar with past gener- al CRP sign-ups will notice that the wetland restoration practice, CP-23, is missing from the list of approved gen- eral CRP practices. The reason is because the practice is missing from the general CRP sign-up list because the Farm Service Agency will be moving the practice to a continuous CRP practice. "In the past, the wetland restora- tion practice CP-23 was very popular with producers. We are optimistic that CP23 will continue to be a popu- lar conservation practice when it is an option under continuous CRP," Smith said. Interested persons can contact their couny Farm Servic.e Agency office. WINNING ESSAY WRITER, Travis Koplin is pictured above.
