ARS hydrologist Tony Buda (far left) and Penn State University climatologist Paul Knight examine regional data they are using to develop a Web-based “fertilizer forecast,” which will help farmers limit nutrient runoff by avoiding fertilizer applications before precipitation events. The program will use a range of weather variables, including the type of meteorological data Penn State associate professor Doug Miller and ARS soil scientist Peter Kleinman (far right) are studying in the background.
