Conservation Reserve Program (CRP)
Conservation Reserve Program(CRP) provides management flexibility to farmers and rachers to implement high-priority conservation practices on fragile lands and along waterways.

The contracts last from 10 to 15 years.

Hillsdale County has 740 contracts for which 2.1 million dollars was paid in annual rental payments.
