Agricultural agencies promote vegetative filter strips (VFSs) for controlling sediment and nutrients in agricultural nonpoint source runoff. Research has documented the ability of vegetated strips along streams to remove nutrients and sediments. There is some evidence to suggest that, in many cases, VFSs are being installed in areas with soils and geomorphic conditions where they are ineffective. From the results the researchers conclude that ideal buffers would contain both grass and trees.
