Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Information on how conservation practices influence the biota within agricultural drainage ditches is limited. We are evaluating fish-habitat relationships within ditches in Indiana and Ohio to gain an understanding of the potential impacts of conservation practices. Our results suggest that practices that alter the hydrology will have the greatest impacts.
