National Grain and Feed Association urges limits on CRP
March 1, 2015
The National Grain and Feed Association has urged the Agriculture Department to enroll in the Conservation Reserve Program only land that addresses key environmental concerns, such as water quality and soil erosion. It seeks to avoid enrollment of large, productive tracts of land in the land-idling program.
NGFA said it made the recommendations to FSA in response to its seeking comments on the agency's environmental impact analysis required to implement changes in the CRP mandated by the 2014 farm law.
