An Approach For Using Soil Surveys To Guide The Placement Of Water Quality Buffers, Michael G. Dosskey, Matthew J. Helmers, Dean E. Eisenhauer

Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Publications

Vegetative buffers may function better for filtering agricultural runoff in some locations than in others because of intrinsic characteristics of the land on which they are placed. The objective of this study was to develop a method based on soil survey attributes that can be used to compare soil map units for how effectively a buffer installed in them could remove pollutants from crop field runoff. Three separate models were developed. The surface runoff models for sediment and for dissolved pollutants were quantitative, based mainly on slope, soil, and rainfall factors of the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE), and ...
