Program enrollment starting
Enrollment in the next round of the Conservation Reserve Program begins March 14 and will conclude April 15.

The voluntary program allows landowners to take land out of crop production and receive annual payments from the federal government. Financial assistance to establish conservation practices is also available.

Program contracts are for 10-15 years.

In Sandusky County, landowners have enrolled more than 3,600 acres in the program, which benefits wildlife habitat, reduces soil erosion, and improves water quality, said W. Todd Warner, executive director of the Sandusky County Farm Service Agency.
