Poorly draining or wet soils with readily visible slopes toward adjacent surface water
Areas over-laying extremely shallow ground water
Areas with in-field canals or ditches that drain to surface water
Areas not separated from adjacent surface waters with vegetated filter strips
Areas over-laying tile drainage systems that drain to surface water
When used on erodible soils, best management practices for minimizing runoff should be employed. Consult your local soil conservation service for recommendations in your use area.
In particular, where highly erodible land (HEL) is adjacent to aquatic bodies, a 66 foot buffer/setback area should be left in grass or other natural vegetation.
