Conservation Connection e-blast...the latest news from NRCS Massachusetts and our partners
The United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has announced the next application cut-off date for three federal conservation programs. Massachusetts farmers and forest land owners can apply for these programs anytime throughout the year; but NRCS will review and rank all complete applications for the current round of funding on February 15, 2013.
In just a few months, America’s farmers and ranchers will have the opportunity to make a positive impact on their communities by taking part in the Census of Agriculture. Conducted every five years by USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), the Census captures a complete count of all U.S. farms, ranches and those who operate them.
