Land Use

Cropland, forestland, pastureland, and rangeland comprise the major land uses in the United States and the land uses receiving the majority of the conservation treatment that address our soil, water, air, plant, and animal resources.

It is the Natural Resources Conservation Service role to provide national leadership and technical assistance for the conservation of our natural resources to ensure the continued production of food and fiber.
