Does the Minnesota Buffer Law require that you add buffers to your property?
We offer technical assistance to help design your buffer and offer $200 per acre for cool season grass buffers and $500 per acre for native grass buffers. Even if you are not required to put in a buffer, they are still a beneficial option for many farmers. Buffers that are not required by the buffer law are eligible for a $300 per acre incentive.
The Scott SWCD performs routine compliance checks at least once every three years on all parcels in Scott County subject to the buffer requirements.
