What are conservation buffers?
Conservation buffers are small areas or strips of land that are strategically placed in the agricultural landscape to intercept pollutants and manage other environmental concerns. These buffers can also enhance fish and wildlife habitat and reduce flooding concerns. Financial incentives for establishing and maintaining these buffers are available through several USDA conservation programs.
