    Thats great news, my neighbor to west just applied for 65 acres of CRP ... with no trees on it. Near my food plot.

    Hope it gets in.

    Information will be coming from your local office soon will be my guess. I'll know more in a few days but I'd guess most reasonable offers will got accepted.

    Nation wide was a 89% acceptance rate.
    Iowa was 97%.
    Missouri was 98%.
    Only the very lowest scores did not make the cutoff.
    Local offices will begin to notify producers no later than April 3.

    Keep in mind that continuous CRP ...which pays more per acre, and better cost share is still available. There are good options out there, you just have to push the local FSA people to sign up...(they probably are not meeting with many landowners right now--with CV 19)

    Duckriver nailed it from the information I am getting today. Plenty of people still chased the lower rates as I had commented and several that I know of in MO even lowered rates to increase points for better chance of getting in. 3.4 million acres accepted nationwide.

    You weren't the only one I can tell you if that makes you feel any better. :)
