Iowa Farmers Urged to Sign Up

As soon as temperatures warm, Iowa farmers will be out in their fields – which means most will be working nonstop.

As a result of Congressional delays, Traci Bruckner with the Center for Rural Affairs says those farmers who want to sign up for the Conservation Stewardship Program are going to be squeezed to get it done before the busy spring planting time.

She says Congress failed to fund many programs in the Farm Bill that was extended, so now it's hard for farmers to figure out which programs are still active and which ones aren't.

Bruckner says farmers who are swamped with field work and need help with the C-S-P sign-up can get assistance from the Center for Rural Affairs, by either calling the office or going online at cfra.org.
