NRCS provides products and services to enable people to be good stewards of the nation’s soil, water, and related natural resources on non-federal lands. With the help of NRCS, people are better able to conserve, maintain, and improve their natural resources.
The NRCS State Technical Committee provides opinions on issues within a variety of NRCS Farm Bill conservation programs. Although the State Technical Committee has no implementation or enforcement authority, USDA gives strong consideration to the Committee’s recommendations.
