Does anyone have any information on the CRP as it pertains to landowners? What does the contract consist of? Is it just the one page CRP-1? Knowing the government, it just seems like it should be more than one page.
I am looking at some land that is in the CRP, but I hit a brick wall when I try to contact the FSA office. Why the heck are they so secretive about it? The current owner needs to give them written permission for them to talk to me about it. So...I can't find out the details on the CRP contract I'm taking over until after I'm the owner? What is there to hide?

There was a big flap a few years ago about the general public finding out how much farmers were getting from the government so a bunch of new security policies have been put in place in order to avoid having American taxpayers find out how their money is being spent.

Why can't you just get permission from the owner to get the information?

Gotcha. I have the contract, assuming it's just the one page. The FSA rep said that the land basically needs to be kept as is until the contract expires, which is fine, but I'd like to see their terms in writing.
The price per acre is at or above market value for corn fields, from what I know. Taxpayers should be interested in how the government is paying farmers not to farm.
