1. Hmmh -

We currently pay farmers not to grow crops. It goes back to FDR and if I recall correctly it was originally called the Soil Bank Program. My grandfather called it his "All Day Sucker".

CRP - Conservation Reserve Program

CRP is a land conservation program administered by FSA. In exchange for a yearly rental payment, farmers enrolled in the program agree to remove environmentally sensitive land from agricultural production and plant species that will improve environmental health and quality.

Farmers around here seem to ignore the part about controlling certain weeds.
