Soil management practices affect soil resources
obviously, but those practices also affect water
and air resources and the plants and animals that
depend upon those resources. Good soil management
builds soil quality, maintains or improves
water and air quality, and supports plant, animal,
and human life (NRCS, 1996a). Minimizing soil
erosion, increasing water infiltration, and promoting
biological activity through good management
ultimately produces a soil with physical and
chemical characteristics consistent with parent
material, topography, and climate
