USDA begins listening sessions on farm bill implementation
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) held listening sessions this week to hear from stakeholders regarding the implementation of the Agricultural Act of 2014, commonly known as the Farm Bill.
NAWG staff participated in the session regarding conservation and research programs operated by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Agriculture Resource Service.
NRCS was given authority in the farm bill to keep programs operating this year with slight modifications, so please visit your local service center for information on enrolling in conservation programs.
USDA hopes to have new regulations for consolidated conservation programs completed this spring or summer.
