dc.description.abstract The Stratford/Avon Project was involved in a major strip cropping project undertaken by a landowner located in the upper part of the Avon River basin in the Demonstration Sub Watershed during 1981-1982. The purpose of the project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of strip cropping in relation to the overall goals of the Rural Sub-Committee of reducing non-point source pollution through runoff and erosion control. Alternate strips of an alfalfa forage mixture were introduced into a field which had grown continuous corn for several years previous. The farmer is convinced that the strip cropping, in combination with other conservation measures, will assist greatly in controlling sheet and rill erosion while maintaining the long-term productivity of the soil.
