WOW Look what we've accomplished during the 2008 Farm Bill  




These amazing facts show how far we’ve come with conservation work in Utah over the past year since we began implementing the 2008 Farm Bill conservation programs.

Salinity control projects on farm land have controlled about 209,000 tons of salt from getting into Colorado River water – enough to fill more than 1,000 rail cars on an 11-mile train.
NRCS provided financial assistance on sprinkler irrigation systems installed on 15,340 acres of farm land – enough to irrigate an area the size of Ogden.
Under contract with NRCS, ranchers built 83 miles of fence to improve grazing – enough fence to span the length of the Great Salt Lake.
Conservation plans were developed for nearly a half million acres of farm and ranch land — more than the size of Salt Lake County.
You could drive from Salt Lake City to the Idaho border along side the 103 miles of irrigation pipe installed to better irrigate Utah farm land.
