Contour buffers or " contour buffer strips" are strips of perennial vegetation alternated down a slope with wider cultivated strips, along a contour. Contour buffer strips are a USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service eligible practice as they reduce sheet and rill erosion, slow runoff and trap sediment.Organic growers are also eligible to gain remuneration by establishing such buffer strips.
