J.B. Martin, Director

Pacific Islands Area NRCS, led by our Director and our Leadership Team, serves diverse agricultural needs through one area office, 12 service centers, and a Plant Materials Center. We provide voluntary, cost-effective program and technical assistance to landowners to conserve, protect and improve soil, water, air, plants and animals. In doing so, we enable farmers and landowners to better steward and manage their property and remain economically viable.
