    3. A brief NRCS history lesson... 1. In 1933 the USDI Soil Erosion Service was established, lead by Hugh Hammond Bennett. It was partly in response to the great Dust Bowl. 2. In 1935 congress established the Soil Conservation Service as part of the USDA. A major goal was to reduce erosion on private agricultural lands. 3. In 1994 the SCS was renamed the NRCS to better reflect it’s larger mission. 4. Currently, the NRCS oversees one of the world’s largest soil databases, covering more than 95% of the counties in the US. 5. There are 75 years of experience and data available for you on the web.
