Welcome Boost For CRP: USDA’s Most Important Conservation Program Gets New Support

President Bush announced important new support for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) on August 4, 2004. Of the numerous conservation programs administered by the USDA, the 20-year-old CRP is the biggest and generates the greatest benefits for farmers and ranchers, fish and wildlife, and hunters and anglers. Growing and strengthening CRP is a top consensus priority of the sporting community.
