Agricultural Lands

Wildlife habitat can be provided by agricultural land uses, including: agricultural fields, reservoirs/managed lakes, farm ponds, canals and ditches, improved pasture, and commercial pine. Wildlife species have been documented to use fallow and active agricultural fields and along the berms of canals and ditches. Therefore species-specific surveys should include altered and agricultural habitats. The recommendations below apply to canal and ditch systems that are isolated from navigable waters of the U.S. and waters of the State.
