Farmers and ranchers are being reminded the new self-service features found on farmers.gov will help you manage conservation activities online and request assistance from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). These conservation features can be accessed by desktop computer, tablet or phone. You can view and download and e-sign documents; request conservation assistance; reference technical terms and submit questions; access information on current and past conservation practices; and view detailed information on all previous and ongoing contracts, including the amount of planned and received cost-share assistance.
The newest features really improve the request process with a unified mapping tool that allows you to locate areas of interest in minutes, with high-resolution aerial imagery and multi-layered display functionality.
To access information, producers will need an account to login in to farmers.gov. Currently, only producers doing business as individuals can view information. Entities, such as an LLC or Trust, or producers doing business on behalf of another customer cannot access the portal at this time, but access is being planned.
USDA is building farmers.gov for farmers, by farmers. For more information click here, or contact your local USDA Service Center.
