Each day in Indiana, the NRCS works with farmers and other private landowners to help them make good conservation decisions about their land. Whether it’s on 1 acre or a thousand acres, sustaining our natural resources has never been more important.
As we celebrate Ag Day throughout this week, I want to thank Indiana’s farm families for all you do to care for the land, improve the environment, and provide us safe and affordable food. I look forward to continuing to work together to safeguard this irreplaceable resource — our soil!
