NRCS Launches Conservation Gateway

nrcs-gatewayFarmers, ranchers and private forest landowners can now do business with U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) through a new Conservation Client Gateway web portal.

NRCS chief Jason Weller says the portal will allow producers will have the ability to work with conservation planners online to access Farm Bill programs, request assistance and track payments for their conservation activities. Weller says the portal has been in development for years and was tested in the real world by early adopters like Iowa farmer Tim Palmer who joined him in making the announcement for the nationwide launch of the tool.
