Nebraska currently has 23 natural resources districts with a broad-based natural resources agenda. Web Soil Survey (WSS) provides soil data and information produced by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. It is operated by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and provides access to the largest natural resource information system in the world.

NRCS has soil maps and data available online for all Nebraska counties. The Soil Conservation Committee evolved into the Soil and Water Conservation Committee by the early s.

Nebraskans depend on soil for food, livestock, fuel, water supply and purification, building materials, waste management, construction engineering, infrastructure, and habitat.

The state's soil productivity is constantly diminished by soil erosion caused by wind and water. Natural Resources Districts try to offset these natural forces by promoting conservation techniques, educating the public, and working with other agencies such as the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources to install best.

That is the value of residue cover and added organic matter in our soils. The conservation spirit of our farmers blesses Gage County. Financial assistance is available through NRCS conservation programs to help farmers install soil saving conservation practices like planting cover crops.

NRCS has identified four key principles to healthy soil: 1) keep soil covered, 2) disturb soil less, 3) feed soil with living plants as much as possible, and 4) increase plant diversity.
