Farm practices like forested buffers around streams and waterways, using cover crops, or adopting no-till farming techniques can help achieve conservation goals.
Forested buffers, also called riparian forest buffers, consist of tree plantings within 35 feet of any stream, or flowing water. Farmers can also introduce cover crops to their planting rotation. Planting itself can be done using no-till techniques.
