Field Manual on Buffer Design

This Buffer Design field manual is intended for use by agricultural practitioners in locating and designing riparian vegetated buffers adjacent to cropland. Buffers are a Beneficial Management Practice (BMP) to reduce runoff of nutrients and other substances from fields into water bodies, to protect water quality. To be effective, buffers must intercept overland flow. Field Manuals are available for the Canadian Prairies and Atlantic Canada.
