Abstract

Abstract

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture makes many of its technical resources available to the general public through its electronic Field Office Technical Guide (FOTG), which includes the list of conservation practice standards. Conservation practice standards are the minimum levels set for acceptable application of conservation technology. The following practices are considered: conservation cover, contour buffer strips, cross wind trap strips, critical area plantings, field borders, filter strips, grassed waterways, herbaceous wind barriers, land reclamation, abandoned and current mined lands, pasture and hayland plantings, prescribed grazings, and silvopasture establishment. Key entry points for tall fescue [Lolium arundinaceum (Schreb.) Darbysh.] within the NRCS PLANTS database are presented. Some tall fescue interactions with wildlife and other ecosystem components are discussed.
