The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Rice Stewardship Partnership, and all of its supporters, including Nestlé Purina, are working with rice producers across the United States to improve water quality and use efficiency, ensure sustainable farming for generations to come, and provide habitat for wetland-dependent wildlife.
