Edge of Field Monitoring

Edge of field monitoring is allowing researchers to evaluate the potential impact on nutrient management and make recommendations on the effectiveness of that practice in reducing nutrient loss.

Edge-of-Field Research to Quantify the Impacts of Agricultural Practices on Water Quality in Ohio

Drainage throughout the high-producing agricultural lands has become a key issue for farmers. By studying the drainage systems farmers are better able to provide information to identify gaps in numerical models. Developing these higher technological systems propel tile-drained regions into more productive, and environmentally sustainable situations.
