Abstract. The USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has addressed gully erosion since the founding of the agency over 80 years ago. Recently, the agency created a significant update to the guidance on gully treatment to reflect new research results and lessons learned by NRCS practitioners from across the United States and through international assignments. Linkages of gully treatment to stream restoration and wetland hydrologic restoration have been made, providing more alternatives for conservation planners to consider. This paper highlights the enhancements and improvements that were made in the gully treatment guidance.
