NRI Process


The Resource Inventory Division leads the NRI effort in cooperation with Iowa State University's Center for Survey Statistics and Methodology and support from:

2015 – 2016 NRI-CEAP Survey of Farming and Conservation Practices, National Refresh

NRCS is partnering with USDA-NASS to deliver the 2015 and 2016 NRI-CEAP survey, which collects information from agricultural producers in the 48 coterminous States and Hawaii. Information to be collected is about conservation practices and other management on cultivated cropland, non-cultivated cropland, and pastureland. NASS representatives will visit 45,000 locations across the 49 States, about half from September 2015 to February 2016 and the other half from September 2016 to February 2017, to collect information on farm production practices; chemical, fertilizer, and manure applications; integrated pest management; and installed conservation practices.

The farmer questionnaire, NRCS questionnaire, and respondent booklet are available online.
