USDA's conservation programs are the single largest investment of federal taxpayer's dollars to encourage farmers to adopt practices that improve natural resources and the environment. Since 1995, these programs have made over $40 billion in payments to farmers and farmland owners.

Used wisely, these programs make great strides in protecting our health and improving our quality of life and the environment.

EWG's Conservation Database provides a detailed look at how federal dollars have been spent through four major USDA programs.
