Buffer strips are considered effective for reducing runoff of sediment and agricultural chemicals from cropland. In fact, buffer strips, or vegetative filter strips, have been suggested as a Best Management Practice to reduce nonpoint source pollution from cropland. This pollution can be great, especially if rainfall occurs shortly after a chemical has been applied.
