CRP Practices to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions
The environmental benefits of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) are vast, but one of the most impactful is the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Through CRP practices, 30 million metric tons of CO2 were removed from the atmosphere in 2020, the equivalent of removing 6 million cars from the road. While all CRP practices
What Does Bioenergy Mean for the Environment?
As the harmful effects of climate change continue to impact our world, the importance of alternative fuel and energy sources, like bioenergy, wind energy, and solar power, is clear. Countries must begin ramping up the utilization of alternatives, and quickly, to protect our environment before it is too late. As an alternative energy source, bioenergy

What Can Bioenergy Do?
With the onset of climate change, scientists have been working diligently for decades to develop alternative sources of energy to replace fossil fuels. Solar power, wind energy, and nuclear power are well-known and established options, but one alternative stands above the rest as potentially the most abundant and sustainable: bioenergy. Bioenergy is produced using biomass,
Can the Conservation Reserve Program Save Your Pollinators?
It’s no secret that pollinator species across the US are endangered, but the massive and potentially catastrophic consequences of pollinator extinction may not be as well known. Honey bees, native bees, butterflies, moths, wasps, and other insects pollinate over three-fourths of the world’s flowering plants and 35% of the world’s food, making these creatures critical
What is CRP Doing for Your Soil?
Aside from improving water quality and enhancing wildlife habitats, one of the primary goals of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) is to reduce soil erosion. Erosion of soil is a major environmental concern, as it deteriorates the quality of both the soil and water on your land. Eventually, this can lead to land that can
