Featuring: Geral, Jacqui, Wanda
Since 1932, the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has provided assistance to agricultural producers to conserve the soil, water, air, plants, and animals on their land. Through offices in nearly every county across the U.S., NRCS provides technical and financial assistance to help agricultural producers - including certified organic and transitioning producers - plan and implement voluntary, science-based conservation practices.
NRCS experts, such as district conservationists, soil conservationists, engineers, bioligists, botanists, and other, work together to help producers find and apply conservation solutions while ensuring their working lands remain productive. Staff often live and work in the counties that they serve, and thereby understand local issues and challenges.
Organic Agricultre and NRCS's goals are well aligned. Many of the USDA Organic regulations can be achieved using NRCS conservation practices, which reflect these shared goals.
