Winona/Root River Pheasants Forever chapter offers financial assistance to landowners


Fri, May 31st, 2013
Posted in All Agriculture

Winona, Minn. - The Winona/Root River Pheasants Forever chapter is offering landowners and farmers in Winona, Fillmore, and Houston Counties with additional financial assistance to make enrollment in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) a more financially attractive option.

CRP is a voluntary program that helps agricultural producers use environmentally sensitive lands for conservation benefits. Producers enrolled in CRP plant long-term, resource-conserving covers to control soil erosion, improve water and air quality, and provide valuable wildlife habitat.

All interested landowners should contact the local FSA office in their county by visiting http://offices.sc.egov.usda.gov/locator/app?service=page/CountyMap&state=MN&stateName=Minnesota&stateCode=27.

Landowners interested in additional financial assistance to enroll acres in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) should contact Jason Ludwigson at 507-313-9633 or JDLudwigson@gmail.com.
