NRCS is developing a national effort to educate our customers and the public about the positive impact Soil Health Management Systems can have on both productivity and conservation. The effort will be rolled out this fall to the public, but before it’s fully released externally, you can get a sneak peak here.
As part of this effort, we’ll be rolling out a series of “Soil Health Lessons in a Minute” video demonstrations. See our latest video, meet "Ray the Soil Guy," and learn how to Unlock the Secrets in the Soil.
The February 2013 edition of Rangelands magazine looks at the seven core conservation practices evaluated by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service's Conservation Effects Assessment Project -- prescribed grazing, prescribed burning, brush management, range planting, riparian herbaceous cover, upland wildlife habitat management, and herbaceous weed control. “Rangeland CEAP: An Assessment of NRCS Practices” summarizes by conservation practice findings gathered by University scientists and makes recommendations for positive change.
