PlansLandSmart Plans® assist landowners and land managers in identifying and prioritizing management practices according to their individual needs, goals and timelines. The planning process balances the landowner's management goals with practices that preserve and enhance natural resources, delivering a plan that is both informative and actionable.
Depending on the characteristics of the property and the landowner's goals and interests, plans may include management practices that address:
- Erosion control on roads, streambanks and gullies
- Water conservation and alternative water supply
- Soil health improvement for productivity and carbon sequestration
- Manure and pasture management
- Enhancement of fish and wildlife habitat
- Agrichemical management
