Conservation Compliance Agricultural Commodity List - Field Production Horticulture

If you grow agricultural commodity crops and you have Highly Erodible Land (HEL) or wetlands, you may need to meet the Highly Erodible Land Conservation (HELC) or Wetland Conservation (WC) provisions of the Food Security Act of 1985, as amended.

Field Production Horticulture

Disclaimer: It should be noted that this list is not comprehensive. USDA program participants should contact their local USDA Service Center's Natural Resources Conservation Service for determinations specific to their cultural practices or for plants not listed here. Where plants are listed as locally determined, they may be treated as annual or perennial based on their use in a local production system.

See the list of annual or perennial crops.

Most are perennials, but in a field production setting they are managed as annuals (local determination will be required). Please check with your USDA Service Center's Natural Resources Conservation Service for the determination specific to your agriculture operation.
