NRCS Standards 360, 468, 578

Three Wisconsin NRCS practice standards were revised to include changes made in the corresponding national NRCS standards.  These three practice standards were open for public comment between January 8 and 23rd.

The comments were compiled and sent to NRCS on January 24, 2013.  NRCS State Office responses to the comments are listed below and in the link above.

Instructions to comment on standards:  Submit comments using the “Leave a Comment” link to the left or the comment section at the bottom of this page. If possible, submit all comments related to a single standard at one time.  Viewers with updated internet browsers should not have a limit on the amount of text that you enter.  Submit comments to additional standards in separate comment boxes. Keep comments specific and directly related to the standard. Indicate the standard and the section you are referring to when commenting, for example “327 Conservation Cover: V.B.4.a(1): Does this mean that…” Respond in the same order as the sections appear in the draft. If you have general comments applicable to the entire standard please note them as such.

Comments will receive responses from the NRCS.  At the end of your comment you may choose to receive an email update to any “replies” to your comment, which would include a response from NRCS.
