Classifying SD Ag Lands 

SDPB1: Thursday, Feb. 28, 8pm (7 MT) 

As part of the 2016 SD Legislature's Agricultural Land Assessment Implementation & Oversight Advisory Task Force, Agribuiness Specialist Dr. Matthew Elliot and his team at SDPB conducted a study on the methodologies and data use in assessing cropland and non-cropland in South Dakota, including the National Resource Conservation Services (NRCS) Land Capability Class. The SDSU group concluded alternative methods and additional dad could be used. We'll explore how these findings may affect land classification in the state.
