Green Report - KARS present vegetation greeness and crop biomass/vegetation relative condition maps.
Dr. Kevin Price, Department of Agronomy & Department of Geography, Kansas State University, has kindly provided and given permission to use a two part presentation, "Comparative Mapping of Vegetative Growth" Part 1 and Part 2 he put together to explain how the Green Report is prepared and interpreted.

2007 Kansas NRCS National Resources Inventory (NRI) Information
Rangeland Resources Assessment - Released December 2010
Kansas rangeland acres continue to decline under the pressures of urban development and other land use changes. These same rangeland acres are important for many reasons including being home for many species of plants and animals. Grassland birds, for example, have declined by an alarming 70 percent. The NRCS's NRI report has documented these changes in land use.

In December of 2010 the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) released it's latest National Resources Inventory (NRI) Rangeland Resources Assessment. Information about the condition of the land and related natural resources is needed at many different scales to inform decision makers. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) gathers rangeland on-site data as part of the National Resources Inventory (NRI). The following report focuses on information derived from NRI rangeland data collected on-site 2003 to 2006. The findings reported here focus on key issues in rangeland science including rangeland health, non-native plant species, non-native and native invasive plant species, bare ground, intercanopy gaps and soil surface aggregate stability. Future reports will provide more detailed results based on more recent data at a finer scale.
