The wealth of this Nation is rooted in the soil. Thirty million people earn their living directly from farms and ranches. The remaining 100 million Americans depend upon the soil for most of their food, much of their clothing, and many other necessities.

Today the soil of this Nation is being wasted away. Erosion is steadily washing good soil out of the fields and pastures, into the streams, down the rivers, and to the sea.
