NRCS is accepting proposals for the Regional Conservation Partnership Program for state, regional and national conservation projects.
In 2013, the NRCS and partners conducted a county-level inventory of the types of cropland management systems used by agricultural producers across South Dakota.
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.
The bill continues to provide technical and financial assistance available to farmers, ranchers and forest landowners.
Get the most out of your soil via a system of conservation practices such as no-till, cover crops, nutrient management, buffers, and drainage systems. This approach reduces erosion, requires less nutrients, manages effects from flood and drought, and reduces nutrient and sediment runoff.
NRCS developed the world’s largest soil carbon dataset that will help producers and planners estimate the impacts of conservation practices on soil carbon levels.
