That is straight off of FSA website, you can't get any better numbers. I am not sure what is so hard to believe? I tried telling some on here when signup was going on crp would get maxed out. I am not sure how much of this is new seeding and how much is renewal. My guess is most of it's renewal.I also have some doubt about the chart, it shows Iowa at 97%...I haven't heard of any new going into the program locally, but there may be counties that are mostly highly productive ground with limited pockets of marginal ground that would be the logical ground for the program, when paying from a percentage of the county average. The chart must not be what we think it is, has to be referring to something different, not the new crp general program....but I do hope the new sign-up was that successful.
I’m thinking this might be the case. I would think that if it is “acceptable” it will be “accepted” however. Unless the cap is reached. I put an offer in for a few acres.Only thing that I wonder about is it is giving you the number that is acceptable which could mean it fits the qualifications but doesn’t mean it was all accepted in to the program?? Just a thought.
