USDA Announces New Opportunities to Improve Nutrient Management

Natural Resources Conservation Service focuses on support for U.S. producers.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced new preservation and climate-conscious plans funded through $19.5 billion allotted under the Inflation Reduction Act. USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will focus on improving opportunities for nutrient management by expanding flexibility in programs, establishing outreach campaigns to promote the economic benefits, and growing partnerships to create nutrient management plans. The plans are intended to address the financial challenges of U.S. producers and address the future of fertilizer availability.

“USDA is responding to the needs of U.S. producers and consumers by adding program flexibilities, expanding options and assistance, and investing in nutrient management strategies to help farmers address local resource concerns and global food security while also improving their bottom line,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For NRCService Chief Terry Cosby as he oversees the implementation of these plans.
  • For discernment for Secretary Vilsack as the USDA seeks to support nutrient management.
  • For USDA officials as they work with U.S. producers on enhancing the quality of soil nutrients.
