Resources 

The Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Plan serves as a guide to individual landowners and land users as they develop water quality plans of their individual operations. 

The official USDA guide for historically underserved farmers and ranchers; this is to include: minorities, women, veterans, beginners, and limited resource producers. A great insight into programs and loans available from the USDA, NRCS, and FSA. 

Purchase of Development Rights, or PDR as it is more commonly known, is Kentucky's first Agricultural Conservation Easement program facilitated by a local government. Through PDR the city purchases farm owners’ development rights, thereby preserving it as farmland forever.

Kentucky is known for having Karst topography, rich with sinkholes and caves.  Little can be done once a sinkhole has formed, but knowing how they form can be helpful. 

Conservation is a collaborative effort. Fayette County Conservation District proudly partners with those listed here.

Intended for landowners and clients to use as an educational and reference guide, regarding common conservation practices.
