Final Report for FNC99-287
Farms with sandy soils experience more wind erosion, low moisture concentration, and high potential for groundwater contamination than operations with other soil types. This soil structure lowers cropland productivity.
Objective: To introduce a more sustainable agricultural system to land with sandy soil to retain its productivity.
The producer established a windbreak with a grass/legume groundcover between the rows of trees. On part of the land, she installed a woodlot agroforestry project to serve as an alternative income source and wildlife habitat.
