The Soil Conservation District of Lawrence County, under the authority of the United States Department of Agriculture and Soil Conservation Service, assisted local farmers in developing plans to manage their lands. These plans included suggestions for preventing erosion, water pollution, and crop failure. For J.J. Courtney, a plan was developed to manage his farm outside of Walnut Ridge that would prevent soil erosion and promote soil health for good crop yields.
