The USDA’s Natural Resources Conversation Service (NRCS) has updated resources - guides, videos, fact sheets, webinars, booklets - for organic farmers and farmers interested in transitioning to organic.


The agency's newest booklet, Growing Organic: NRCS Assistance for Organic Farmers, provides information for farmers who are interested in implementing practices that support soil health, weed management, habitat and biodiversity, irrigation and water management, pasture management, and high tunnels.


An updated guide for using RUSEL2, the Revised University Soil Loss Equation tool, was also recently added to its roster of resources.
