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: Specific Cooperative Agreement

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

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

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.
