Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in New Mexico, Department of Agriculture.

ACTION:

Notice of availability of proposed changes in Section IV of the FOTG of the NRCS in New Mexico for review and comment.

SUMMARY:

It is the intention of NRCS in New Mexico to issue a series of new conservation practice standards in Section IV of the FOTG. These revised standards include: 595-Pest Management, 332-Contour Buffer Strips, and 382-Fence.

The NRCS New Mexico State Conservationist has chosen to revise and supplement the National Standards adapted to the State of New Mexico. These will be incorporated into Section IV of the New Mexico Field Office Technical Guide (FOTG). Some of these practices may be used in conservation systems that treat highly erodible land and wetlands. Copies of these standards are available from NRCS in Albuquerque, NM and are also available electronically on the NRCS New Mexico Internet Homepage at: http://www.nm.nrcs.usda.gov/​techserv/​sec4home.htm
