Building trust in food begins with empowering farmers through one of the largest and most diverse conservation- and sustainability-focused public-private partnerships in our nation’s history: America’s Conservation Ag Movement. To find the latest news and resources related to the Movement, visit AgWeb.com/ACAM.


A new video series from NRCS and farmers.gov, Conservation at Work, presents short and easy to understand videos about popular conservation practices. The videos feature farmers explaining how an individual practice helps their land and why they are using it.

The videos shine the spotlight on farmers, ranchers, and forestland owners from across the U.S. who explain why they’ve implemented the conservation practices and how they work on their land. They also provide insight into how each practice is helping them protect and improve resources and save time and money.

The first 15 videos cover:
•    Brush Management
•    Cover Crop
•    Forest Stand Improvement
•    Grade Stabilization
•    Grassed Waterway
•    High Tunnel
•    No-Till
•    Nutrient Management
•    Prescribed Grazing
•    Pumping Station
•    Sprinkler System
•    Trails and Walkways
•    Waste Storage
•    Water & Sediment Control Basin
•    Wetland Restoration

The Conservation at Work video series can be found at farmers.gov/conserve/conservationatwork.

The Conservation at Work video series was created to increase producer awareness of common conservation practices and was filmed at various locations throughout the country. Because conservation plans are specific to the unique resource needs on each farm and also soil type, weather conditions, etc., these videos were designed to serve as a general guide to the benefits of soil and water conservation and landowners should contact their local USDA Service Center for individual consultation.
