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

Location: National Soil Erosion Research

Project Number: 5020-12130-001-22-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jan 10, 2014
End Date: Aug 31, 2016

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.
