If you plan to sell farmland, be aware of consequences associated with Farm Service Agency (FSA) programs. For example, to sell land that is enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), the buyer must agree to continue the enrollment. If the buyer does not continue the CRP contract, you might have to refund all of your CRP payments. Please speak with an FSA representative to reviewing any program implications before completing a farmland sale.
