[April 17, 2013]  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 acres.

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.
