Nature Conservancy Backs Farm Bill Conservation Programs

As House and Senate Agriculture leaders keep working toward passing a farm bill yet this year, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is urging Congress to approve legislation that will continue to provide farmers and ranchers with the tools to conserve our nation’s land and water resources, according to Larry Clemens, TNC agriculture director for North America.

Soil health is of particular interest to the Conservancy, which provides technical support to the Soil Health Partnership, which fosters transformation in agriculture through improved soil health, benefiting farmer profitability, a stable food supply, and the environment.
