CRP Seed Mixes

MINNESOTA     IOWA     WISCONSIN     ILLINOIS


The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) is a program for agricultural landowners through which participants can receive annual rental payments and cost-share assistance to establish long-term, resource conserving covers on eligible farmland. Individuals enrolled in CRP receive annual rental payments based on the agriculture rental value of the land, and cost-share assistance for up to 50 percent of the costs of establishing approved conservation practices. CRP contracts range from 10 to 15 years.

Shooting Star Native Seeds has developed CRP Native Seed Mixes based on state specifications for Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Illinois. We're more than happy to tailor these mixes to meet the needs of your individual project, or quote mixes based on seeding plans from your technical service provider or local NRCS office. If you decide to use one of our mixes for your CRP project, please get approval to use the mix from your local NRCS office before purchase.

Please contact us via telephone, fax, or e-mail for pricing.

CP2 - Permanent Native Grasses

CP2 is the establishment and maintenance of cover used to protect soil and water resources on land retired from agricultural production. Permanent native grasses are used to reduce soil erosion and sedimentation, improve water quality and create or enhance wildlife habitat.

CP25 - Restoration of Rare and Declining Habitat - Tallgrass Prairie

CP25 is the restoration and conservation of rare or declining native vegetative communities and associated wildlife species. The purpose of CP25 is to provide habitat for rare and declining wildlife species by restoring, conserving, and increasing the diversity of native plant communities.

CP33 - Habitat Buffer for Upland Birds

CP33 is the establishment of upland habitat buffers to provide food and cover for quail, upland birds, and other wildlife species. Grassland dependent bird species have suffered significant population declines due primarily to the loss of habitat. Habitat buffers around crop fields can provide critical nesting, brood rearing, and security cover.

Native Habitat Development for Pollinators

The Native Habitat Development for Pollinators program was created to restore and conserve native plant communities that benefit pollinators and associated wildlife species. Pollinators, including bees, butterflies, moths, wasps, flies, beetles, ants, bats, and hummingbirds, are attracted to areas that have adequate sources of food, shelter, water, and nesting sites. They are an integral part of the environment and our agricultural systems.

Forb and Legume Interseeding for Wildlife

Native forb and legume interseeding is used to increase plant diversity in native grass plantings or in old field habitats. Interseeding provides wildlife with a food source during the winter and can also create excellent brood habitat for upland wildlife during the summer. Sites should be interseeded after a disturbance such as prescribed burning, light disking, or herbicide spraying.
