Delaware County Landowners Participating in Spring CRP Burning

You’ll see some landowners doing some CRP burning this spring.

Chris Hiher, Farm Bill Biologist with Pheasants Forever, explains the reason behind the burning.

He says the best time to burn depends on what you’re wanting.

Hiher says you can burn all your acres at once or you can do it in sections.

And if you don’t want to burn your acres yourself, help is available.

If you have any further questions about CRP burning, you can contact the NRCS office at 927-4590 extension 3 or you can call Chris at 929-0375.

The Iowa DNR is also conducting prescribed burns this spring on wildlife management areas. Those areas include Buffalo Creek and Ram Hollow in Delaware County, Whitewater and White Pine Hollow in Dubuque County and Muskrat Slough and Oxford Junction in Jones County.
