METHOD FOR ESTIMATING SOIL EROSION ON U.S. CROPLAND Soil erosion rates and total erosion on cropland in the United States were estimated using data from the National Resources Inventory (NRI). The NRI is a statistical survey designed to assess natural resource conditions and trends on non-Federal land in the United States. This non-Cited by: 2.
