Decent Essays
The Deep Creek Water Quality Initiative Project offers funds for you to protect water quality and prevent soil erosion! This project is to demonstrate Nutrient Reduction Strategy (NRS) practices which will address water quality priorities identified in the watershed.
Why install conservation practices?

Cover crops: reduce soil erosion, captures, recycles and redistributes nutrients, suppresses weed growth, minimizes and reduces soil compaction, increases soil organic matter.
Terraces: reduces soil erosion by breaking slopes into a series of shorter ones, protects water quality by intercepting agricultural runoff, helps prevent gully formation, makes it easier to farm steep slopes, and they improve soil quality and productivity by improving
