Aaron Heilers, project manager of the Blanchard River Demonstration Farms, talks about the edge-of-field monitoring network and how it helps us identify what practices have the greatest impact on reducing nutrient loss.
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.
On this episode of Field Day with Jordan Hoewischer, we talk with Dr. Kevin King from USDA Agriculture Research Service about his Edge of Field Monitoring program, which services as the backbone of scientific information for most nutrient and soil management decisions in the Midwest.
