Nitrates - Part 2

Episode #2609

 

Don Roseboom of the Geological Survey, University of Illinois Extension Director Doug Gucker, Dan Schaefer of the Illinois Council on Best Management Practices and Warrensburg, Illinois, farmers David and Chase Brown will discuss methods to reduce nitrate levels in waterways. A recent study of farm runoff in Bloomington revealed there was more nitrate content than expected in stream ways. Nitrates result from nutrients like nitrogen that farmers apply to crops. The panelists will look at ways to reduce nitrogen application to farm fields, including alternative farming techniques and the use of cover crops.
