FSA accepts 3.4 million acres into General CRP

The USDA says the number of acres just accepted into the general Conservation Reserve Program is significantly higher than the 2016 signup.

FSA Administrator Richard Fordyce says, “Three-point-four million acres accepted in this sign-up this year, so we’re pretty happy with the number of offers I think, and also the number of acres and the number of offers that were accepted.”

Fordyce tells Brownfield in 2016, USDA was close to the acreage cap and could only accept about 400-thousand acres in the General CRP program.
