Soil erosion over the past 88 years in southern Idaho has had a subtle, but an extremely
important impact upon crop production potential. Recent research has shown that the
crop yield potential, averaged over all crops grown, has been decreased 25% during this
period. This represents a permanent loss because loss of productive topsoil actually
changes the production potential by factors that modern technology cannot replace.
