What are the specific goals?

The goals of the Indiana CREP are to:

Enroll 26,250 acres of eligible cropland and marginal pastureland, including frequently flooded lands, into CREP to establish buffer practices and
wetlands;

Protect at least 3,000 linear miles of watercourses by installing buffer practices;

Reduce the amount of sediment, nutrients and agricultural chemicals entering watercourses within the targeted watersheds;

Increase the acres of wetlands in the watersheds for erosion control, sediment reduction, storm water retention and nutrient up-take.

Enroll 15 percent of the eligible watershed's cropland subject to normal CRP acreage limits by county.
