M-H RTE = Man Made Hazards
A point deduction allowed for the increase in operating costs due to man-made hazards such as railroads, highways, roads, etc. The deductions typically range from 1 to 6 points but may be higher in extreme circumstances. Man-made hazard deductions are only applied to arable land. On the sample field sheet there are no man made hazard discounts so the area is left blank.

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