About the District
The Buckeye Valley Natural Resource Conservation District (NRCD) is located west of Phoenix. The District is mainly composed of arid desert shrub lands with some grasslands at higher elevations. The main agricultural production is irrigated farmlands based on ground water. Cattle ranching is the main use of the remainder of the District, although carrying capacities are generally low. Wildlife values low due to the airidity.
The District coordinates cost sharing and technical assistance from NRCS and other agencies for landowners and managers in the District. Practices such as fencing and water development on rangelands along with improved irrigation facilities, water management, and crop rotations on irrigated lands are examples of the measures used to improve water and soil conservation and productivity.
