Abstract/Contents:Profiles the National Conservation Buffer Initiative, stating that "the goal of the initiative was to establish, by the year 2002, two million miles of conservation buffers in the United States." Describes a study conducted to "[evaluate] the performance of grass buffers on a field scale in four watersheds in eastern Nebraska." Concludes that "buffers that are properly designed and strategically located could easily remove more then one-half of the sediment lost from cropland in Nebraska."
