The 2014 Farm Bill was enacted on February 7, 2014. NRCS offers voluntary Farm Bill conservation programs that benefit both agricultural producers and the environment.
Some programs will be available immediately, while others will require limited time to be set up within the agency. Details are on each program page and at your local USDA Service Center.
