What we are doing

We work with ag retailers to improve management of our key soil, nutrient and crop-protection resources by keeping them on our cropland and out of our streams, rivers and lakes.

Why we are doing it

Ag retailers are key players in addressing nutrient runoff by ensuring their customers’ dollars stay on the field for crop nutrition, rather than running off into nearby waterways.

Webinars

Our webinars present the latest nutrient management research and economic returns for ag retailer products and services that improve water quality.

The preliminary data presented here demonstrates the ability of cover crops to recapture nitrogen as it moves through the soil profile during the fallow winter period, thus reducing the negative environmental impacts of excess nitrogen fertilizer use on drinking water quality in the municipal wells.
