Vegetative filter strips have proven to be effective in improving water quality on rill-irrigated row crops, especially when they’re established before the crop irrigation season begins. Establishing vegetative filter strips before the beginning of the irrigation season can greatly reduce the loss of soil and nutrients early in the growing season by successfully intercepting and treating water flow.
