IOWA’S soil resources are our richest natural asset. Our soils constitute important foundations of the state’s economy and contribute materially to the nation’s prosperity and well-being. The maintenance of our soils in a high state of productivity is essential to the continuing well-being of our state and nation. The job of maintaining our soils is not an easy one. Fine starts have been made. But the job ahead is as tremendous as it is important. It calls for reliable information to be used by farmers, both farm operators and farm owners, throughout the state.
