Wilkes County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director CED Julia W Houck, announced that pollinator habitats will now be accepted as a Continuous Sign-up Conservation Reserve Program (CCRP). CCRP is a voluntary program that helps producers apply conservation practices to safeguard environmentally sensitive land. Pollinator habitats are areas of permanent vegetation located in an agricultural landscape: field edges, field middles, odd corners, or any agricultural location that is suitable for establishing pollinator habitat. Participants are eligible to receive a $150 CRP Signing Incentive Payment (SIP) per acre.
