Here’s a rundown of federal conservation programs
While it’s true that some farming practices can degrade natural resources and the environment, other practices can preserve and enhance our natural heritage and provide substantial benefits through careful management of agricultural land.

USDA's conservation programs help agricultural producers improve their environmental performance with respect to soil health, water quality, air quality, wildlife habitat, and greenhouse gas emissions.
