NASHVILLE, March 23, 2021 - National Ag Day is March 23, 2021, and this year’s celebration takes on special significance because of the coronavirus pandemic and the challenges it presented.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) joined other federal agencies, organizations, universities, and stakeholders to recognize farmers and private forest landowners, their families, and workers who produce food, fiber, and fuel for the nation and the world.

This year’s National Ag Day theme, “Food Brings Everyone to the Table,” demonstrates the importance of conservation programs, effective risk management tools, and safety-net programs in helping agriculture thrive.

NRCS in Tennessee salutes our farmers and private forest landowners for their unwavering commitment to providing affordable, safe, and abundant food, fiber, and fuel to the nation and the world.

Thousands of agricultural producers have voluntarily used NRCS programs and services to protect their natural resources, invest in their operations, and manage their risks very successfully. Meet a few of them from across the country.

NRCS offers various disaster assistance and conservation programs to help agricultural producers in the Tennessee weather market changes and recover from natural disasters. In addition, there are programs to help agricultural producers and forest landowners improve their operations. Learn about additional programs.
