Yep - sign up your land so the government has even more control over it...

While I can understand the appeal of getting payments for doing certain things with your land.... but I just cannot help but think that it opens the door. I think folks should be able to decide what to do with their land...

You can decide what to do. You have to decide whether or not you want to enroll in it. No one forces you to enroll in these programs.

pgooch..... keep those links to yourself. Some of those programs are hard enough to get into without competition. :wink:

I'll take all the money the government wants to give me. Some of it is not just a little bit. :thumb:

That ain't fair to the people that doesn't know about these programs. :wink:

Lot's of good stuff out there if you just ask. Think of how many ponds that have been built on the rural farms in Arkansas alone!

WHIP sign up

The sign up for the Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program is also underway right now. It came out with a real short deadline. Application has to be made by March 28 so get by your USDA field service center now if you're interested.

These programs are worth looking into. I'm enrolled in 3 different CRP programs that are worth $5,000.00 per year for 15 years. I was concerned about government control also, but I'm convinced that is not an issue. I received a $7,100.00 bonus for signing up. That covered the cost of buying and planting trees, and then I was reimbursed 90% of that cost. The only control I gave up was agreeing not to harvest the trees for 15 years. That was no big thing to me because I wanted to plant trees anyway. Go to your local FSA or NRCS office and they will give you all the info that you need. Each county has one. Not all programs are competitive. Some are continual signup programs.

I have participated in various habitat improvement cost sharing plans for over 10 years.

I have given up nothing in the form of government control.

Has your experience been different?
