Tons of Soil Saved Through Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RULSE) Conservation Program

Posted on 10/21/2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration

Drought can increase the threat of soil erosion caused by wind.  Farmers and ranchers have improved practices over the years to help conserve top soil.   Enrollment in a conservation program is a positive way to help prevent soil from eroding into streams, lakes, rivers, and reservoirs.

In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years.  Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized.  This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes.  Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter.  This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
