Agricultural Management Assistance (AMA) provides cost share assistance to agricultural producers to voluntarily address issues such as water quality, and erosion control by incorporating conservation into their farming operations. Producers may improve  animal operations; plant trees for windbreaks or to improve water quality; and mitigate risk through production diversification or resource conservation practices, including soil erosion control, integrated pest management, or high tunnel houses.
