Max Armstrong shares insight and history on a USDA program to take land out of production

Max Armstrong reports on the Conservation Reserve Program designed to compensate farmers for taking environmentally sensitive land out of production. However, this year enrollment is slow. Max looks at the history of the size of the program, which has been declining every year since 2008. The Biden Administration aims to put 30% of U.S. land into conservation by 2030.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
