1

You should check "Yes" to "Cover crops" when what problem is marked on your card?

Any of the following present:

> 2 - 18% slope
Flood plain
Medium surface texture
Single grained, platy, or massive soil structure
Topsoil depth less than 8"
Poorly and very poorly drained soils
Very shallow to restrictive features
Slow or very slow inflitration
Few living organisms

2

You should check "Yes" to "No Till / Strip Till / Maintain Residue" when what problem is marked on your card?

Any of the following present:

>2-18% slopes
Single grained, platy, or massive soil structure
Topsoil depth less than 8"
Somewhat poorly drained soils
Shallow or very shallow to restrictive features
Slow or very slow infiltration

3

You should check "Yes" to "Grassed Waterway" when what problem is marked on your card?

Should be used where water runoff from two adjacent slopes concentrates and flows at erosive rates which could create gullies - slopes should be evaluated within the flagged area

4

You should check "Yes" to "Contour Farming / Strip Cropping" when what problem is marked on your card?

Should be used on land with broad uniform slopes from > 2 - 18% with moderately well and well drained soils - slopes should be evaluated within the flagged area

5

You should check "Yes" to "Permanent Pasture or Woodland" when what problem is marked on your card?

Should be used when slopes are > 18 - 25%

6

You should check "Yes" to "Permanent Woodland" when what problem is marked on your card?

Slopes greater than 25%

7

You should check "Yes" to "Riparian Buffers / Buffer Strip" when what problem is marked on your card?

Used in a floodplain

8

You should check "Yes" to "Heavy Use Pads" when what problem is marked on your card?

Medium, moderately fine, and fine surface textured soils that are somewhat poorly or poorly / very drained

9

You should check "Yes" to "Slight Risk" when what problem is marked on your card?

All of the following present:

0 to 2% slopes
Coarse, moderately coarse, moderately fine or fine surface textures
Granular or blocky structure
>8" of topsoil
Well moderately well drained
Deep and moderately deep to restrictive features
Moderate or rapid infiltration
Common or many living organisms
