FSA will be conducting a General Conservation Re- serve Program (CRP) begin- ning March 12th, 2012 and ending April 6th 2012. Land that is not currently enrolled in CRP may be offered for en- rollment during signup #43. In addition, CRP participants with contracts expiring on September 30, 2012 may sub- mit offers. Accepted con- tracts for CRP signup #43 will begin on October 1, 2012. The number of acres ac- cepted under signup #43 will be determined after signup concludes based on the envi- ronmental benefits and the cost of the acres offered. The CRP offer process for signup #43 is expected to be highly competitive. The national en- vironmental benefits index (EBI) cutoff score will be de- termined after signup con- cludes. Kansas City will be sending out reminder letters to those participants that have CRP expiring September 30, 2012 so be watching your mail for these.
