CP25 ADDED TO EMERGENCY USE DESIGNATION FOR GRAZING ONLY

     The Kansas Farm Service Agency (FSA) announced this week the additional authorization of emergency use on Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres classified as CP25 for grazing only. This authorization covers the same 44 counties previously declared eligible for emergency use on CRP. Grazing will be allowed on CP25 through September 30. 
     There will be no CRP annual rental payment reduction for 2018 emergency haying and grazing use. Several restrictions apply to the CP25 authorization, including the grazing-only designation and only 50% of the field area may be grazed.              
     Previously, FSA released CRP for emergency haying and grazing in 44 counties. CP25, which is designated for rare and declining habitat and totals more than 152,000 acres in the affected counties, was not included in the original announcement. 
     Individual producers must request and be granted authorization before conducting emergency haying and grazing on CRP. Contact your local FSA office for more information or approval.
