    Default Crp

    My farmboy cousins in Kansas are saying that USDA is withdrawing funding for CRP land, will now be going back to dryland corn & milo.

    Anybody else hearing this? I thought there were the pollinator enhancement thingies coming up but...Of course the gravy train is over.No $$.

    The only thing for the bees in WI CRP land is golden rod. It's about time the Gov stopped wasting its money on this foolish ideal anyway. Aren't they just paying the farmer to not make his land as productive as it could be. They say it is for the wildlife while they destroy the places the wildlife already has for their pansey palace city slickers idea of living in the great outdoors(next to the only 20 trees they didn't cut down and call it a wooded lot). Sorry, had to vent a little.

    Sure was nice for the bees in some places though: clover, alfalfa..

    I also heard it was ending. Did you know it is ILLEGAL to place bees in a field that is in the CRP program? As is just driving in it not on the original field road.

    Default Placement

    No, that was allowed as of 08, actually ON crp, without pre approval. That's one of the reasons I'm surprised it's ending now, but I can see why!

    I was told by USDA CRP inspector that bees could not be placed on crp fields in WI. They cover an area that the gov is paying to be in specified planting thus killing the crop they are paying for.
