USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has a proud history of supporting America’s farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners. For more than 80 years, they have helped producers keep their working lands working, along with improving the quality of our air, water, soil and habitat. This is being done through one-on-one, personalized advice, finding the best solutions to meet unique conservation goals. NRCS Chief, Matt Lohr, told Southeast AgNet he is working to streamline NRCS programs to make it easier for producers.
NRCS provides farmers, ranchers and forest managers with free technical assistance, or advice, for their land. If you farm or ranch and want to make improvements to the land that you own or lease, stop by your local NRCS field office.
