These data were released prior to the October 1, 2016 effective date for the USGS’s policy dictating the review, approval, and release of scientific data as referenced in USGS Survey Manual Chapter 502.8 Fundamental Science Practices: Review and Approval of Scientific Data for Release. This data set represents the estimated percentage of the 1-km grid cell that is covered by or subject to the agricultural conservation practice (CP600), Terrace Farming (TF) on agricultural land by county. Terrace Farming is described as "an earth embankment, or a combination ridge and channel, constructed across the field slope" ...[for the purpose of] reducing soil erosion and retaining runoff for moisture conservation. This practice...

This data set represents the estimated percentage of the 1-km grid cell that is covered by or subject to the agricultural conservation practice (CPIT03), Gravity and Pressure Irrigation Source (GPI) on agricultural land by county. Gravity and Pressure Irrigation Source are described as a "combination of Gravity and Pressure Irrigation." (U.S. Department of Agriculture, 1995) This data set was created with geographic information systems...

This data set represents the estimated percentage of the 1-km grid cell that is covered by or subject to the agricultural conservation practice (CPIT01), Gravity Irrigation Source (GI) on agricultural land by county. Gravity Irrigation Source is described as irrigation "delivered to the farm and/or field by canals or pipelines open to the atmosphere; and, water is distributed by the force of gravity down the field by: 1) A surface...

This data set represents the estimated percentage of the 1-km grid cell that is covered by or subject to the agricultural conservation practice (CPIS05), Combination of Irrigation Sources (CIS) on agricultural land by county. A combination of irrigation sources means one or more sources of irrigation, such as wells, ponds, or streams are used on agricultural land. (U.S. Department of Agriculture, 1995) This data set was created with...

This data set represents the estimated percentage of the 1-km grid cell that is covered by or subject to the agricultural conservation practice (CPIT02), Pressure Irrigation Source (PI) on agricultural land by county. Pressure Irrigation Source is described as irrigation "delivered to the farm and/or field in pump or elevation induced pressure pipelines; and water is distributed across the field by: 1) Sprinkle irrigation (center...

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
