Private landowners seeking to enroll acres in the USDA’s Conservation Reserve Program can increase their chances of being accepted by improving environmental benefits in their offer. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will host three CRP seminars in northwest Missouri to help landowners. The seminars will give an overview of CRP programs and discuss how to improve the Environmental Benefit Index for acreage offered to the program.
The sessions include: March 2 at the Hal England Center in Princeton; March 4 at the Litton Community Room near Chillicothe, and March 11 at the Ketcham Community Center in Trenton. All sessions will begin at 6 p.m.
