New Farmers.gov features help you 

manage your USDA business online 

Last June, NRCS’ Conservation Client Gateway moved to farmers.gov enabling USDA customers to access multiple conservation features through a platform that provides a customer-centric digital experience. Farmers.gov provides a secure, single desktop- and mobile device-accessible authenticated portal for FSA, NRCS and RMA customer-facing features. 

As we’ve continued to add more content and capabilities, farmers.gov has quickly become the premier online hub for customers to find resources, submit applications and assistance requests, and make connections. Another new feature is coming to farmers.gov to help you manage your USDA business. You’ll now receive an email letting you know that an NRCS document needs your signature, which you can quickly and easily sign online in the portal.

The farmers.gov portal also enables you to: 

• View, upload, download, and e-sign 

documents. 

• Request financial assistance, including 

submitting a program application. 

• View and submit conservation requests.

• View technical references and submit 

questions.

• Access information on current and past 

conservation practices and plans     

• Report practice completion and request 

practice certification. 

• View detailed information on all previous 

and ongoing contracts. 

• Have the authority as an FSA and/or NRCS 

customer to work in the  portal and act on 

behalf of your active power-of-attorney 

entitlements and your current authorities for 

business entities. 

These conservation features join several others already available through the farmers.gov portal, including the ability to view farm loan information. We’ll continue to update you about new features as they become available. 

If you do not have login information for farmers.gov, you can create your login profile, or eAuthentication by following the instructions at farmers.gov/sign-in. 

The Conservation Features User Guide gives you step-by-step instructions on how to navigate farmers.gov and the how-to video instructions explain some of the popular features. If you need additional help, personal assistance is available at the farmers.gov Service Desk by selecting the “Help” link located at the top of the authenticated portal pages and submitting a “Contact Us” request. NRCS field office staff are always available to assist you with your conservation questions and other needs.
