Pheasants Forever is hosting informational meetings across Ohio for landowners and agricultural producers in advance of the USDA Farm Service Agency's Conservation Reserve Program general sign-up that runs May 20 through June 14.
Led by Pheasants Forever Farm Bill Wildlife Biologists, landowners can learn how to increase their farm or ranch income while creating wildlife habitat in the process.
"It is Pheasants Forever's belief that there is room for conservation on every farm and ranch in the country," says Dave Nomsen, Pheasants Forever's Vice President of Government Affairs,
At CRP informational meetings, Pheasants Forever Farm Bill Wildlife Biologists will discuss how the Conservation Reserve Program works, and provide landowners with expertise on increasing the chances of their acreage qualifying for the program.
While a majority of meetings are occurring prior to the opening of CRP General Sign-Up 45, in some areas meetings extend into the first few weeks of the open sign-up period.
The CRP informational meetings are organized by Pheasants Forever, Quail Forever, the Farm Service Agency and the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
Landowners who can't make a CRP informational meeting are encouraged to make an appointment with their local Pheasants Forever Farm Bill Wildlife Biologist or visit their local FSA office.
Upcoming sessions in Northwest Ohio include one at the Gottfried Nature Center, 9783 County Highway 330, Upper Sandusky, on Wednesday at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. There is also one on Tuesday at USDA Service Center, 110 Industrial Dr., Suite F, Wapakoneta.
