The NRCS Plant Materials Program, with its 25 Plant Materials Centers (PMCs), cooperates with a variety of public and private conservation partners to collect, evaluate, select and release plants to the public to solve resource conservation problems.  This testing helps ensure that the plants grow under a variety of climates and soil types and will perform as needed.

PMCs have released over 750 conservation plants to the public.  This publication outlines each of those released plants and provides a single source guide to plants that have been developed through NRCS cooperative efforts for use in natural resource conservation.
