USDA hosts conservation program meeting

The U.S. Department of Agriculture will hold an informational meeting about the Conservation Reserve Program 10 a.m. to noon May 7 at Stanton Town Hall.

Starting May 20, landowners can sign up for CRP, which provides cost-sharing assistance for planting long-term, resource-conserving covers to improve the quality of water, control soil erosion and enhance wildlife habitats.
