Iowa has received an additional 115,000 CRP acres for SAFE projects which restore high-priority wildlife habitat tailored to specific state’s needs. These projects can be used to restore habitat for threatened and endangered species, species that have suffered significant population declines or species that provide significant social or economic value to the community.
25,000 acres are targeted for pheasant recovery, 40,000 acres will be dedicated to quail habitat and the remaining 50,000 acres will be used for the establishment of annual or perennial wildlife food plots.
Producers interested in submitting applications for these programs should do so now as acres will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please contact the Keokuk County FSA office at (641) 622-2800 to inquiry about the options available to you.
