Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We have captured no evidence for the effects of buffering in-field ponds on farmland wildlife.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
This intervention involves providing buffer strips around in-field ponds. These buffer strips serve the same purpose as those along rivers or streams with the aim of reducing pollution from agricultural systems and providing habitat.
