Our primary mission is to assist North Dakota's farmers and ranchers secure the greatest possible benefit from programs administered by FSA such as farm loans, commodity price support, disaster relief, conservation, and other available resources. The hard working men and women of North Dakota's 51 county offices are at the forefront of our efforts and they remain the primary contact for program participation and related questions.
North Dakota's diverse agricultural bounty feeds the entire world and I look forward to working with farmers and ranchers from throughout our great state on the issues and challenges ahead. I encourage you to contact me at FSA's North Dakota State Office with any questions you may have about our programs or operations.

2015 marks the 30th Anniversary of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and in recognition of this milestone, FSA has launched a commemorative website. The web address is www.fsa.usda.gov/CRPis30. We hope you’ll visit the site often to take an interactive, cross-country tour and see the nationwide impact of CRP unfold virtually over the next several months.
The Agricultural Act of 2014 (the Act), also known as the 2014 Farm Bill, was signed by President Obama on Feb. 7, 2014. The Act repeals certain programs, continues some programs with modifications, and authorizes several new programs administered by the Farm Service Agency (FSA). Most of these programs are authorized and funded through 2018.
For the latest on 2014 Farm Bill programs administered by FSA, please visit our Farm Bill website at www.fsa.usda.gov/farmbill and for an FSA program overview please read, download and/or print our recently posted FSA Farm Bill Fact Sheet titled, What’s in the 2014 Farm Bill for Farm Service Agency Customers?
