Best Management Practices: Buffer Strips


Buffer StripsWell-managed buffer strips go a long way to filtering farmland runoff before it enters streams, wetlands, ponds and lakes. This has many benefits for water quality, erosion prevention, soil water-holding capacity, fish and habitat quality, livestock health, and drain maintenance. This book explains how to establish, maintain, and improve buffer strips according to the topography and land uses on your property.
