Edge of Field Practices: Water Quality Solutions for Farmers and Landowners
August 12, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
More tile drainage is installed in Midwestern agricultural fields every year. Tile drainage is an essential practice that allows farmers to get in the field earlier, but it can also cause water quality issues. Learn four “edge of field” conservation practices farmers and landowners can adopt to reduce nitrogen loss through tile drains and improve water quality. Extension Watershed Outreach Associates Rachel Curry and Jennifer Joneswill explore drainage water management, bioreactors, saturated buffers, and constructed wetlands.
