OFFICE TECHNICAL GUIDE (FOTG) - Technical guides are the primary technical
references for NRCS. They contain technical information about the conservation
of soil, water, air, and related plant and animal resources.
Technical guides used in each field office are localized so that they apply
specifically to the geographic area for which they are prepared. These documents
are referred to as Field Office Technical Guide (FOTG).
Appropriate parts of the Field Office Technical Guide are automated as data
bases, computer programs, and other electronic-based materials such as those
included in these web based pages.
