Assess the impact of conservation practice implementation on water quantity and water quality from tile-drained fields and small watersheds within the St. Joseph River watershed.
1. Measure water quantity and water quality from agricultural fields and drainage ditches to quantify water, nutrient, and sediment transport; 2. Evaluate and test the effectiveness of conservation practices for improving water quantity and water quality from tile-drained fields and watersheds; and 3. Improve modeling and assessment tools for quantifying water, nutrient, and sediment transport for fields and watersheds under current and future climates.
