What is the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP)?
As we farm with agrochemicals, whether it be fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides we run the risk of those pollutants ending up in our waterways.
This is due to our planets geomorphic processes, interactions between landscapes, hydrology, and humans. For instance, as we apply fertilizers, which are rich in nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, our crops only will use a certain percentage of that.
The rest will attach itself chemically to whatever it can and end up in the waterways. The conservation practices that CREP pays you to implement, provides a natural filter that help mitigate that process.
