We recently announced the expansion of our CRP program, our conservation reserve program, looking forward to adding four million acres to that program.

He also announced a significant investment of hundreds of millions of dollars in regional conservation partnership projects. In 45 states and over eight critical conservation areas, this resource will help to leverage and attract an additional 400 million dollars into these projects and the focus on drought relief, enhanced soil health and expansion of wildlife habitat.
