• Phase II - Livestock Production Limitations

Potential At-Risk Maps and Information

The following are the potential at-risk maps produced during the Arkansas Resource Assessment - Phase II. The NRCS definition of the natural resource concern and the input layers and land use designation weights that were used for modeling the natural resource concern within the Livestock Production Limitations Resource Concern are listed to the right of each map. More detailed maps are available by clicking the link below each map.

There were three natural resource concerns listed under the Livestock Production Limitations Resource Concerns; the three resource concerns were addressed identically and therefore have the same results. None of the natural resource concerns under the Livestock Production Limitations Resource Concern were selected for Priority Area designation at this time.
