CONSERVE TENNESSEE: 2014 Farm Bill updates & streamlines popular USDA conservation programs.
The 2014 Farm Bill recently became law, providing funding for the nation’s major conservation programs.
As the federal government’s primary agricultural and food policy tool, the Farm Bill supports many USDA programs, including the conservation programs that provide farmers, ranchers and forest landowners with technical and financial assistance to address resource concerns on their land.
Assistance includes both technical expertise and funding to help put conservation practices on fields and in forests in Tennessee and across the country.
