Getting Assistance with RUSLE2

If you are an employee of an agency that has implemented RUSLE2, first contact your designated technical specialist for RUSLE2 in your agency.

In particular: NRCS personnel should contact their state agronomist or state technical specialist with RUSLE2 responsibility. That individual can, in turn, obtain help from the NRCS RUSLE2 contact in that region.
