Snow Fences at Work
snow fences are most often deployed on land used for crop production,
agricultural implications represent a chief concern for local landowners.
For the winter of 2000-01, three types of living snow fence designs
in southern Minnesota were studied (strips of standing corn, twin-row
honeysuckle, and single-row honeysuckle/red cedar). To see results from
this study, please visit the Task
