The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service helps private landowners conserve our natural resources, and air resources are among those. Our Air Quality resource concerns can be broadly classified into four air quality and atmospheric change issues:
Greenhouse Gases and Carbon Sequestration
For each of these major issues the latest science and the most relevant technical tools are being applied so that NRCS personnel, cooperators and landowners can make the best decisions regarding air resources.
This 31-page guide provides information about NRCS conservation practices and other activities that can be used to address air resource concerns associated with cropping systems and general land management.
