WTVP - At Issue
WTVP’s ongoing, locally produced public affairs program. Hosted by series producer H Wayne Wilson, this weekly show provides an in-depth, up-to-the-minute exploration of issues that are important to the people of Central Illinois. One week might feature a look at educational initiatives, another might focus on community issues, while still another might give viewers a chance to ask questions of our elected officials.

All AT ISSUE programs provide vital information to our viewers—from efforts to revitalize neighborhoods to joint cooperation between governmental units to riverfront development on both sides of the Illinois River. AT ISSUE is just one more way that WTVP serves you through public television.

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.
