100,000 acres of Iowa farmland to the CRP

Posted:

Iowa farmers have agreed to put nearly 100,000 acres of land into the government's Conservation Reserve Program.

The program preserves land prone to erosion and reduces runoff of fertilizers and other chemicals into streams and rivers.

Farmers are paid to set aside the land and not use it for crops.
