dc.description.abstractVegetative filter strips (VFSs) are one of many best management practices (BMPs) that farmers can use to help limit the amount of pollution that comes off of their farms. VFSs are areas of land that have been planted with vegetation in order to intercept overland flow, decrease flow velocity, and increase localized surface water infiltration. As surface irrigation water flows through a VFS, the plant stems physically slow the water down. This reduction in velocity allows for suspended sediments to settle out in the VFS. In addition to other pollutants, VFSs have been shown to be effective in reducing water quality impairments associated with nutrients and sediments.
