Research Project: Assessing the Relationship Between Soil Health and Water Quality

Location: National Soil Erosion Research Lab

Project Number: 3602-12130-001-22
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jan 10, 2014
End Date: Dec 31, 2014

Objective:
The objective of this project will be to assess soil health at the landscape scale and identify how soil health affects water quality.

Approach:
Fields with various management histories will be sampled within a landscape context to represent the various landscape positions and potential for runoff/leaching of contaminants from the watershed. These samples will be compared to runoff water quality in fields where monitoring occurs.
