About South Dakota NRCS

NRCS puts 80+ years of experience to work in assisting owners of America's private land with conserving their soil, water, and other natural resources.  Local, state and federal agencies and policymakers also rely on our expertise.  We deliver technical assistance based on sound science and suited to a customer's specific needs.  Cost shares and financial incentives are available in some cases.  Most work is done with local partners.  Our partnership with local conservation districts serves almost every county in the nation, and the Caribbean and Pacific Basin.  Participation in our programs is voluntary.
