Document Description
This project provides financial incentives and technical assistance to growers to plant cover crops and other vegetative practices for winter erosion control. These practices are anticipated to provide sediment load reductions to tributaries of the Pinto Lake Watershed. This project will educate growers of the benefits of cover cropping and vegetative erosion control practices for both local waterways and grower's soil health. It also opens dialog and fosters relationships between conservation staff and growers to advance the implementation of other farm water quality protection practices.
