Pastures fires light Kansas skies as traditional burn season extends to April 30

An intentional pasture burn set against a dusk sky created an impressive panorama west of Hillsboro Sunday evening. Last week the Farm Service Agency in Kansas announced a temporary extension to the Conservation Reserve Program burning period in the eastern half of Kansas, including Marion County. CRP participants in these counties now have until April 30 to complete required burning. Officials with KFSA said the extension will assist CRP participants by providing greater flexibility in planning maintenance or managed prescribed burns on days having optimal burning conditions.
