Now is the time to complete paperwork if you have a CRP contract that will expire on Sept. 30, 2013.
You were notified by letter this spring if you have a contract expiring by the national office and we have contacted you by phone to see if you are interested in re-enrolling this land in the CRP program. We have run the soils data and have provided you with the soil rental rate you will receive using the new soil rental rates that became effective on May 10, 2013.
NRCS has been making field visits to determine that the present seeding is acceptable and the CRP acres are capable of being planted and free of trees.
The next step is for you to provide us with a copy of the deed for proof of ownership. We can then proceed with the contract and conservation plan of operation that NRCS will be completing with you. All land owners must sign this paper- work, even if they are not receiving payment.
Contracts need to be completed and approved prior to contract expiration to maintain eligibility in the CRP program so please give this immediate attention. Call the Palo Alto County Service Center at 712 852 3386 to get this paperwork completed timely.
