Educate NRCS employees and the general public on new soil testing methods that will improve our understanding of soil management systems.

The principal focus of the CEAP effort is to produce a national assessment of environmental benefits of USDA conservation programs to support policy decision and program implementation. Specifically, we will analyze soil samples, build a database, and train NRCS on soil testing/soil health.
