NRCS Releases Soil Erosion Results

Natural Resources Inventory provides information on resource conditions and trends.

USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service released state-by-state results today for soil erosion and land cover and use on nonfederal lands, based on the 2003 Natural Resources Inventory.

"This information is the first release of any state-level estimates from the Annual NRI inventory process," says NRCS Chief Arlen L. Lancaster.

NRI was first conducted in 1977 and done every 5 years until 1997. In 2000, NRCS started to transition to an annual inventory cycle. NRI provides information about various resource conditions and trends on nonfederal lands.
