For years, farmers have been leveraging the collective power of research and promotion programs to invest in research that improves on-farm practices through both innovation and conservation. Their efforts, with oversight from USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), has resulted in significant water and soil conservation, safeguarding our land for future generations.

Through agricultural promotion groups – founded and funded by farmers and industry stakeholders – American producers continue to strive for innovation that will help preserve natural resources for future generations.
