House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson, D-Minn., made the following statement today in recognition of the
25th anniversary of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). The program was formed as part of the 1985 Farm Bill and covers 30
million acres across the United States.
"The Conservation Reserve Program enables our nation’s farmers and ranchers to protect and preserve their land while also providing
us with clean air and water, and areas to hunt and fish. I am proud that the last farm bill did more for conservation than any
previous bill and will remain committed to conservation efforts as we look to the 2012 Farm Bill."
