Practices by type of cover

Compost application: 

  • Compost applied to annual crops, perennial crops, vineyards, or orchards
  • Compost can be purchased or produced on-farm
  • Purchased compost must come from a certified compost facility.

Cropland practices:

  • These practices improve the soil’s water-holding capacity, stability, and organic matter content. 

Herbaceous cover establishment:

  • These are practices that use grass to decrease wind and water erosion and keep nutrients in the soil. 

Woody cover establishment:

  • These are practices that use trees or shrubs, not grasses, to decrease wind and water erosion. 

Grazing lands practices:

  • These practices aim to improve the productivity and sustainability of pastures and rangelands.
