Acres Removed From Program

3 million acres of farmland are being taken out of the federal conservation program and may be tilled. The change has many environmentalists concerned about wildlife habitat, water quality and soil erosion.
39 million acres of farmland across the country are protected by the Conservation Reserve Program, but 3.4 million acres were taken out in September. The removal stems from present owners’ not renewing their contracts.
A change in the 2008 Farm Bill also caused the removal because the bill caps the program at 32 million acres.
Most of these acres are located in Texas, Kansas and Colorado. North and South Dakota, as well as Montana are also effected.
