During the 1940s the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service replaced the Agricultural Adjustment Administration in the administration of federal laws related to agriculture. The ASCS has regional, state, and county offices. As was the case under the AAA, each county has a farmers' committee working in cooperation with federal employees. The mission of the ASCS is to promote conservation and price stability. Virtually every county in Texas has its own county ASCS office. Services include distribution of price-support payments and cost-share programs for various conservation projects. Each office also stores aerial photographic maps of its county. The maps are used for road planning and other development projects.
