    Description

    Minnesota’s agricultural landscape is changing. The increasing use of woody perennials in agricultural fields, living snow fences, windbreaks, and riparian areas has important watershed management implications for agricultural watersheds in northwestern Minnesota. These changes in land use could lead to reductions in annual water yield, annual flood peaks, and dry season flows, with reduced non-point source pollution of streams, lakes and ground water. Where woody crops become an important part of a watershed, we expect a reversal of hydrologic changes on agricultural lands that have resulted from wetland drainage and extensive annual cropping that has taken place over the past century.
