Technical Resources

Conservation Planning - The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is the U.S. Department of Agriculture's principal agency for providing conservation technical assistance to private landowners, conservation districts, tribes, and other organizations. NRCS delivers conservation technical assistance through its voluntary Conservation Technical Assistance Program (CTA). CTA is available to any group or individual interested in conserving our natural resources and sustaining agricultural production in this country.

Data, Maps & Analysis - Includes geographic information science (GIS), economics, and the National Resources Inventory.

Ecological Sciences - NRCS uses many science-based disciplines (agronomy, biology, cultural resources, invasive species, manure management, nutrient management, pest management) in helping people help the land. This inter-disciplinary approach to natural resources conservation is revealed through these disciplines and related technical references and tools.

Electronic Field Office Technical Guide (eFOTG) - Technical guides are the primary scientific references for NRCS. They contain technical information about the conservation of soil, water, air, and related plant and animal resources. Technical guides used in each field office are localized so that they apply specifically to the geographic area for which they are prepared. These documents are referred to as Field Office Technical Guides (FOTGs).

Engineering - The Wyoming NRCS Engineering staff is comprised of agricultural and civil engineers, geologists, and engineering technicians that provide innovative, economical, and timely services to NRCS staff, conservation partners and private landowners. We provide planning, design, and construction services to solve problems related to soil erosion, water quality, agricultural waste management, and wetland restoration. 

Land Use - Cropland, range/pastureland, and small areas of forestland comprise the major land uses in Wyoming and the land uses receiving the majority of the conservation treatment that address our soil, water, air, plant, and animal resources.

Plant Materials & Bridger Plant Materials Center - Access plant fact sheets, technical notes, information on conservation plant releases, field planting reports, plant materials forms, and related plant websites.

Soils - The Wyoming NRCS Soils Program provides quality soil, geographic, and resources information, products, and services to internal and external customers.
