Conservation Planning - Provides conservation planning and technical assistance to clients (individuals, groups, and units of government). These clients develop and implement plans to protect, conserve, and enhance natural resources (soil, water, air, plants, and animals) and to address their social and economic interests.
Agronomy - References and tools which demonstrate the effectiveness and adaptability of emerging practices for livestock and crop production systems.
Air Resources - Find information on how air concerns relate to wind erosion and soil loss; to plant growth and yield, human health, air nuisances like odors and noise; and to global concerns such as potential changes in greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere.
Survey (including snow depths at select SNOTEL sites)
Cultural Resources - Cultural Resources are evidence of past human activity. Find information on Federal, state, and local laws enacted to preserve cultural resources, including the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. Understanding our past and being good stewards of these nonrenewable resources helps provide the basis for a healthy and profitable farm environment today.
Economics and Sociology - The Resource Economics and Social Sciences Division (RESSD) provides policy direction, coordination, and leadership for the social science disciplines, including Agricultural and Resource Economics, Alternative Agricultural Enterprises and
Agritourism, History, Sociology, Cultural Anthropology, and Environmental Psychology.
- A collection of references and tools related to energy conservation and
renewable energy production.
Engineering - A collection of references and tools related to the planning, design, and construction of engineering conservation practices in Wyoming.
Forestry / Agroforestry - Find information on policies, standards, and procedures for the management, development, conservation protection, and productivity of forests, as well as the planning, establishment, management and utilization of windbreaks and other agroforestry practices on private land.
Plant Materials - Access plant fact sheets, technical publications and information on conservation plant releases, sources of conservation plants, and related plant web sites.
Range and Pasture - Find information on how to implement good
stewardship practices and proper management of pasturelands, rangelands,
grazed forestlands, and haylands.
Soils - Find out about Wyoming's prime soils, hydric soils, erosion, leaching, soil surveys, soil maps, and all other information about Wyoming Soils.
Snow Survey - see Climatic Data above
Water Resources - Find information on Wyoming Reservoir Data, Current Stream Flow Conditions, Irrigation Water Management, Water Conservation, and national or state maps.
- Find information on how to effectively integrate the habitat considerations of biological resources into conservation plans for farms, ranches, backyards, city parks, rangelands, streams, rivers, lakes, wetlands, estuaries, and riparian areas. Habitats are components of living landscapes, and their conservation is critical to all living things, including humans.
The Field Office Technical Guide (FOTG) is the primary scientific reference
used by NRCS in conservation activities. This guide is available on-line as
the electronic Field Office Technical Guide (eFOTG).
