AFT works at all levels of government to improve both water resources & farmer viability. We work with the states, Congress, USDA, and EPA to improve existing programs and policies so farmers get the financial and technical assistance they need to make conservation improvements.

Whether presenting research on the environmental and economic benefits to soil health practices adoption in front of the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, to working with local governments in target watersheds, AFT is in the room when discussions are occurring that affect farmers, soil health, and water.
