Soils Program

The Arizona Soils Program is part of the National Cooperative Soil Survey (NCSS), an effort of Federal and State agencies, universities, and tribes to deliver scientifically-based soil information.

Arizona NRCS hosts two soils staffs:

  • The State Soil Survey staff provides soil survey products and technical assistance to local agency and conservation district field offices as well as landowners in the State of Arizona.
  • The Southwest Region 8, Major Land Resource Area staff provides regional quality assurance and technical guidance to National Cooperative Soil Survey partners located in parts of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah.
