Skid trails are designed to follow the contour of the land and reduce erosion. IPM strategies include evaluating current pest problems in relation to the cropping history, previous pest control measures, and applying pesticides only when an economic benefit to the producer will be achieved, i. Buffer strips are strips of grass located between and around impervious paving materials such as parking lots and sidewalks, and a body of water. 355 pp, 7 MB, October 2009. 3 billion acres are devoted to agriculture.
Visit the for additional details. Use proper logging and erosion control practices on your forest lands by ensuring proper construction, maintenance, and closure of logging roads and skid trails.
The CORE 4 program promotes reducing non-point sources of pollution from croplands through integrated use of the following four complementary practices: Conservation Tillage - leaving crop residue plant materials from past harvests on the soil surface reduces runoff and soil erosion, conserves soil moisture, helps keep nutrients and pesticides on the field, and improves soil, water, and air quality; Crop Nutrient Management - fully managing and accounting for all nutrient inputs helps ensure nutrients are available to meet crop needs while reducing nutrient movements off fields.
States monitor water quality in a subset of NWQI watersheds. The effects of this runoff vary widely, depending on the type of operation, landscape conditions, soils, climate, and farm management practices. Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Act N. This collection of publications ranges from historic documents to reports released in the new millennium, and features works like: Bicycle for a Better Environment, Health Effects of Increasing Sulfur Oxides Emissions Draft, and Women and Environmental Health.
Using drip irrigation instead of furrow irrigation decreases the amount of water lost to ditches or evaporation and allows better control of the amounts of pesticides and nutrients added to irrigation water. Information is provided on methods for sample site selection, sample size estimation, sampling and result evaluation and presentation.
, July 2005 Federal Facilities• Activities on working farms and ranches can affect water quality, both locally and across multi-state watersheds.
New Jersey also participates in the USDA-NRCS which permanently helps preserve and protect wetlands in order to promote water quality and improve habitat.
