Agricultural Management Assistance (AMA) Updated:12/2020

The Agricultural Management Assistance (AMA) helps agricultural producers manage financial risk through diversification, marketing or natural resource conservation practices. NRCS administers the conservation provisions while Agricultural Marketing Service and Risk Management Agency implement the production diversification and marketing provisions.

Producers may construct or improve water management structures or irrigation structures; plant trees for windbreaks or to improve water quality; and mitigate risk through production diversification or resource conservation practices, including soil erosion control, integrated pest management, or transition to organic farming.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service  oversees the conservation provisions of AMA.  The Agricultural Marketing Service is responsible for an organic certification cost-share program, and the Risk Management Agency  is responsible for mitigation of financial risk through an insurance cost-share program.
