USGA Summary Points:Preliminary results indicate that total runoff volume from multiple vegetative filter strips (VFS) of increasing mowing height is significantly less than total runoff volume from the single VFS mowed at a single height. Nutrient concentrations in water samples collected from the multiple VFS of increasing height were not significantly different from nutrient concentrations collected from the single VFS mowed at the single height. Multiple VFS at progressively increasing heights reduced nutrient runoff by delaying runoff initiation compared with a single VFS mowed at a single height. During the first hour of simulated rainfall events, multiple VFS reduced total runoff by 46% compared with single VFS.
