USGA Summary Points:Information on the size, as well as the ratio of buffer width to fairway width, of vegetated buffer strips is needed. Prairie seed was obtained from Prairie Nursery which included flowers and grasses. A commercial fine fescue seed mix was obtained from L.L. Olds Seed Co. (Madison, WI) which contained Chewings, creeping red, and hard fescues. Plots in Fairway 4 had an average of 13 times more runoff than plots on Fairway 10. Vegetation type did not seem to affect runoff during the establishment year. Buffer strip ratio does seem to have an effect, but more sample analysis is required to determine its importance.
