Sediment is the principal pollutant resulting from soil erosion on agricultural lands. Soil erosion also contributes to the delivery of other agricultural related pollutants to surface waters. Application of practices which control erosion on agricultural lands can be effective in reducing sediment and related pollutants in surface waters. Intensive application of terraces and other practices at critical locations will have the greatest effect on sediment reduction.
