USDA Seeks Public Comments on Conservation Practice Standards
USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announced today it is seeking public input on its existing national conservation practice standards as part of implementing the 2018 Farm Bill.

NRCS is requesting public comments on how to improve conservation practice standards that support programs. The comment period ends April 25, 2019.
