Conservation

Conservation programs have grown significantly in size and scope over the last 25 years. The Agricultural Act of 2014 maintained the core functions and goals of the conservation title while eliminating or combining duplicative and overlapping programs, streamlining delivery, and saving over $6.5 billion over 10 years.

The Conservation programs provide farmers, ranchers, foresters, and landowners with voluntary, incentive-based financial and technical assistance for conservation practices. Through these programs producers protect and restore water quality and quantity, air quality, wildlife habitat and meet regulatory requirements while providing a safe and abundant food supply.
