Description

The mission of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), introduced in 1985, is to reduce soil erosion and increase wildlife habitat by planting native cool-season grasses on highly erodible land. After 10 years of fallow conditions, farmers can expect any number of problems when returning this land to crop production. One probable result will be the occurrence of soil-insect pests, primarily wireworms (Coleoptera: Elateridae ).
