Landowners will be able to sign up for the next round of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) between January 18 and February 11, 2000. The CRP is designed to improve natural resources by protecting millions of acres of topsoil from erosion. Landowners participate in CRP by taking crop and grazing land out of production and planting vegetative cover in its place. Planting cover restores habitat for wildlife and improves water quality in streams, ponds, lakes, and rivers.
