Assessment of the Effects of Conservation Practices on Cultivated Cropland in the Lower Mississippi River Basin
Daryl Lund (ed)
The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) helps farmers and ranchers plan, select, and apply conservation practices to enable their operations to produce food, forage, and fiber while conserving soil and water resources. This study assessed conservation practices in the Lower Mississippi River Basin, which includes most of Louisiana and parts of Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. The value of agricultural sales in 2007 was about $9.6 billion in this region -- about 72% from crops and 28% from livestock. Soybeans, corn, cotton, and rice are the principal crops. Results from the farmer survey show that farmers there have made significant progress in reducing sediment, nutrient, and pesticide losses from farm fields through conservation practice adoption, but that much more could be done to protect farm fields from losses. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
