In another life I was a community planner. One way to conserve those good agricultural soils is to use natural landscaping along the edge of rivers and lakes to capture nutrients and slow erosion. At the community I worked for we collaborated with the Soil Conservation Service to maintain and establish these natural barriers along the rivers in our community. The SCS is a great resource for trying to improve these land use practices. Thanks for covering this topic.

indiepundit, i go out of my way to try and buy food grown naturally, but since there is no government oversite, no government monitoring or penality for lying , i often wonder if what i'm really buying is nothing but the lie on the package. Now with this gang in power all hell is about to break loose when it comes to being poisoned in a zillion different forms for profit.
