USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) issued a new Conservation Concerns Tool to learn help farmers and landowners about conservation issues that might impact their agricultural operation. The tool program helps farmers and landowners work better with USDA in developing solutions targeted to fit the farm's needs. With plain language and illustrative photos, the Conservation Concerns Tool provides a walkthrough of more than 40 conservation concerns related to soil, water, plants, animals, energy, and air. The tool may be used to create a list of resource concerns specific to your farm, ranch, or working forest, that can be downloaded to share with Natural Resources Conservation Service staff at a local USDA Service Center.
The tool is available now on our farmers.gov website, no login or account necessary.
