    CJ has the link thanks for that.

    Curious if anyone has ever or is currently enrolled.

    40 acres/10 year minimum enrollment from what I gather.
    Lifetime enrollment as well. :eek:

    Hmmm...I have 40 acres of beans that I am going to put back into better grasses when I seed it down. I just may have to do the 10 year deal and get cost share to put it the NWSG I was going to buy anyways. A rotational grazing system was the plan anyways.

    I considered enrolling but in my county the rate is $8.50/ acre. Just not enough to worry about the rules and forego possible future cost share programs. Acres under a GRP contracts are usually not eligible for SWCD or EQIP cost share programs.

    Correct and CRP contracts will have to end the year you apply for GRP or you will be ineligible until they do.
    Just wondering if anyone is enrolled now.

    that's for sure 8.50 is not enough to mess with all the rules and regs.

    The rate in Mercer county is 16.00. Some folks that sign up for life will get on the order of $7-800.00 per acre, more or less depending on the fair market value of the land in question.
    Might be good for someone up in years that doesnt run cattle anymore...
    Course, lifetime "easment" basically is quite a committment.
