Degraded Plant Condition

Sara Schellenberger, NRCS

Sara works hard to improve water, air, and soil quality by administering farm programs and manure and water storage solutions.

PLANT CONDITION

Plants are the fabric which covers the soil. They hold the soil in place to reduce erosion and improve water quality. Plants provide our food, materials for shelter, fuel to warm us and replenish the air we breathe. Plants provide food for animals and habitat for wildlife.

Invasive plants and pests can ruin crop fields and forests and drastically alter the natural processes of ecosystems.

NRCS develops technical information and guidance to assist conservationists and landowners with enhancing plant and animal populations and addressing invasive plant and pest concerns.

“Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife, are in fact plans to protect man.”
