''After CRP'' conferences scheduled in Texas

Two conferences designed to explore the opportunities and alternatives available to Texas landowners with expiring Conservation Reserve Program contracts have been scheduled in Amarillo and Lubbock.

"After CRP: Wildlife, Farming and Grazing” conferences, sponsored by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, will run from 8 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. on June 17 and June 18.

"If you're thinking about the future management of the land that you currently have under a CRP contract, or you are starting to consider various alternatives and would like to know what others exist, these conferences will provide some answers,” Ken Cearley, AgriLife Extension wildlife specialist in Canyon.

They both will address: compliance issues, cost-assistance programs, land management and economics with wildlife in mind, the economics of farming and grazing alternatives, impacts on land value and the effect on future eligibility for federal farm programs.

In addition to CRP contract holders, those contemplating or involved in buying or selling CRP land, agency personnel, educators and others with an interest in sound land management will likewise benefit from the program, Cearley said.
