Agriculture

The Prince William Soil and Water Conservation District offers numerous services to agricultural operations, both large and small. We offer conservation and nutrient management planning, financial assistance (Cost-Share and Tax-Credit) for conservation practices, seminars on natural resource and agricultural topics, etc. We are non-regulatory and all of our services are provided at no cost to the landowner.

Traditional Agriculture refers to growing crops, such as hay, soybeans, corn, and specialty crops (e.g. tomatoes), or raising livestock such as beef cows, dairy cows, chickens, sheep, goats, etc. (i.e. any animal that produces a product).
