The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has released the 1997 Summary Report of the National Resources Inventory (NRI). Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman asserted that the study shows America's need to increase its conservation efforts. "Conservation challenges are mounting and intensifying more quickly than we are solving them. This report demonstrates that we must redouble our efforts to preserve farm and forestland, reduce soil erosion, improve water quality, and protect wetlands."
