USDA announced Thursday the opportunity for producers to voluntarily terminate CRP contracts amidst concerns of a global food crisis due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Producers with CRP acres expiring will receive a letter from USDA’s Farm Service Agency detailing information on CRP flexibility, including re-enrollment for sensitive acres.
Participants who do choose the one-time, voluntary termination and are approved by USDA are not required to repay rental payments. A request for termination must be made in writing through a producer’s local USDA office. Acres transitioning to crop production can begin preparation this fall.
