Examine the influence of a multitude of conservation practices on nutrient export at a field and small watershed scale to determine the amount of implementation needed to reduce loads to acceptable limits
Utilize paired fields and paired watershed and a before after control impact design to assess the impacts of conservation practices. The edge of field site will be used to assess the impact of a single practice on surface and subsurface (tile) water quality. The watershed scale study will assess the impact of conservation practice density (i.e., utilizing multiple practices) in one watershed compared to business as usual in the pair.
