End Date: Sep 1, 2013
Quantify fate and transport of agrochemicals from agricultural fields to drainage water via surface and subsurface flow paths. Identify and develop Best Management Practices to optimize crop production and minimize contaminant losses to water.
Monitor water quantity and quality at the Cedar Creek sub-watershed of the St. Joseph River Watershed in NE Indiana under different cropping and management practices. Laboratory studies are designed to further the understanding of basic contaminant transport processes. Field studies will be used to expand the findings of laboratory research to real world scenarios.
