Free planning is available to nurseries, as well as 75% cost share funding for projects that address soil erosion. Fill out our site visit request form to learn more about Erosion Solutions.

Gravel farm roads

Replacing dirt farm roads with gravel roads that are designed to ensure a solid, driveable surface during wet winter months. The ditches are planted with grass to capture rain as it flows off the road.

Grassed waterways

Ditches that have been graded and planted with grass in order to convey water down a slope without erosion.

Filter strips

Strips of perennial grass that run across the slope of a field to intercept and filter surface runoff.

Cover crops

Grass and legumes that intercept and filter rain and runoff, hold the soil in place with roots, capture excess nutrients, protect the ground from equipment traffic, and build soil structure. These can be used on whole fields between crop rotations or in strips between crop rows.

Erosion control products

Temporary erosion control devices such as wattles, silt fences, mulch, and check dams to slow and filter runoff during harvest.

Sediment basins

Basins designed to temporarily store sediment laden water allowing the sediment to settle out.

Soil tests

Beyond nutrient content, tests soil for organic matter content and soil type to determine how prone it is to erosion.
