Caption for August 2010 AgResearch magazine article, "There’s More Than One Way To Save the Bay." 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.
