The Missouri Soil and Water Conservation Program administers the policies and general programs developed by the Soil and Water Districts Commission to assist farmers and landowners with soil and water conservation by providing partial reimbursement for 52 conservation practices through soil and water conservation district offices in each of Missouri’s 114 counties. These voluntary practices are designed to address areas such as grazing, irrigation, woodland, pest and nutrient management, animal waste, ground and surface water, and soil erosion. The Soil and Water Conservation Program is funded by the one-tenth-of-one-percent Parks, Soils and Water Sales Tax that has been voter-approved for over 30 years.
