Incentive plan for farmers to enroll land in conservation program

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The U.S. Department of Agriculture will unveil a new incentive plan to encourage farmers to enroll up to one million new acres of land into the conservation reserve program.

Contracts for about 6.5 million acres expire in September. With prices of crops so high, they're concerned farmers will start producing on the land instead of enrolling into the program.
