Page 3: Interest and Experience with Natural Resource Conservation 

County, State, and Federal resources like financial assistance, educational materials, and technical assistance exist for farmers and ranchers in U.S. mainland states, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands.

Some government resources are available to farmers and ranchers if they want or need to make enhancements to crop land, pasture, range land, forests/woodlands, waterways, and farm energy systems in order to better protect natural resources like soil, water, air, plants, animals, and energy.  The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) can support farmers with specific enhancements called “Conservation Practices” and these should improve and protect the natural resources on the land you manage and the land beyond.
