Collection Survey is conducted in the field on non-Federal pastureland sites in the 48 coterminous states, non-Federal rangeland sites in twenty states and on BLM managed rangeland sites in thirteen western states. The non-Federal NRI Grazing Land sample sites are selected from the larger set of NRI sample sites.
