A Closer Look at RIPE100 Qualifying Practices: Filter Strips

RIPE chart shows benefits of filter strips

At RIPE, we continually work to expand the set of RIPE100 qualifying practices. Here we highlight filter strips, which provide over $100 per acre in environmental benefits.

Producers who implement filter strips provide significant climate benefits. The practice reduces greenhouse gas emissions by over 0.8 metric ton per acre — worth over $40 per acre. The practice can also deliver over $2,400 in water quality benefits and nearly $70 in air quality benefits per acre, reaching a total of over $2,500 per acre.
