Conservation & Sustainability
Key Issue: Conservation & Sustainability
Farmers’ livelihoods, their ability to feed a growing population, and the legacy they pass on to their children all depend on taking care of the land and using natural resources wisely. NAWG advocates for strong voluntary conservation programs and works with growers and USDA to implement them properly. NAWG also works with coalition partners to help ensure sustainability initiatives work on the farm. Farm Bill Conservation programs help producers maintain and improve their land through cost-share programs and technical assistance.
