Technical Abstract: Recent discoveries and technological innovations in the field of soil and water conservation have been built on the shoulders of our predecessors’ research. Conservation is defined broadly, to include the quality of water as it moves lower in the watersheds, and is discussed according to contaminants. Within-field source prevention and reduction practices as well as off-site mitigation practices are described. Examples concerning point, field, and watershed scale assessments of the status and trends of conservation practices are given. In conservation as in production, researchers are increasingly aware of within-field spatial variation. The authors agree that soil and water conservation holds a place of high importance in research priority and potential to help improve the state of our world.
