The Largest Investment in Conservation Since
the Dust Bowl

Protect Ag Conservation is a coalition of 644 businesses, farms and groups, dedicated to empowering American agriculture to lead on climate.

Congress made a promise to America's farmers, ranchers, sportsmen and ag-centered businesses.

Last year, we fought to secure $20 billion in funding for extremely effective and popular Farm Bill Conservation Programs. Now, we’re going to bat to protect that hard-fought funding for climate-smart ag and to ensure that it is included in the 2023 Farm Bill. Our supporters have distinct perspectives from across the country and compelling stories to tell about the need for these transformative investments.

Around the Country

"For both New Jersey and the country, agriculture is an indispensable provider of food and jobs, and an important part of the culture in many rural communities. It also contributes 10% of the greenhouse gas emissions released by the United States. These emissions are themselves exacerbating the climate crises underway."

"Congress has an opportunity to make the largest investment in conservation since the Dust Bowl. Delivering necessary funding to these conservation programs is a viable pathway to addressing climate change while supporting farmers, landowners, and rural communities."



Farm Bill conservation programs promote and enable have real on-the-ground benefits for farmers, landowners and the environment.
