N-H RTE = Natural Hazards
A point deduction allowed for the increase in operating costs due to natural hazards such as creeks, draws, sloughs, ravines, rivers, etc. The deductions typically range from 1 to 6 points but may be higher in extreme circumstances. Natural hazard deductions are only applied to arable land. On this sample field sheet there is a two point discount applied to cover the cost of farming around waste sloughs.

This category is an economic factor which adds to the cost of production and is expressed as point deductions.
