USDA OKs Indiana emergency grazing
Emergency grazing of land enrolled in the USDA's Conservation Reserve Program has been approved in 22 Indiana counties by the Agriculture Department's Farm Service Agency due to severe drought conditions across much of the state.
The authorization is effective immediately and will run through Sept 30, the state's FSA office announced today. Producers interested in emergency grazing of CRP land must request written approval from their local FSA office.
USDA's latest weekly crop condition reports showed 71% of Indiana's pasture acres in poor to very poor condition in the region's worst drought since 1988. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
