SPRINGFIELD -- The Farm Service
Agency reminds Conservation Reserve Program participants that
maintenance and management activities on CRP acres must be completed
outside of the primary nesting season, which begins April 15 and
continues through Aug. 1.
"CRP participants must not engage in any CRP maintenance or
management activities during the primary nesting season," said
Scherrie Giamanco, state executive director.
Participants with maintenance issues that require immediate
attention must contact their county FSA office for permission
prior to performing any spot spraying or spot mowing on CRP
Failure to contact the county FSA office prior to any
maintenance on CRP acres during nesting season may result in
payment reductions or possible contract termination.
