Past and Present Research Projects contacted at the Water Quality Field Station.
- Characterization of the role of tile spacing on crop productivity and nutrient loss.
- Examination of crop rotation, fertilizer and manure on greenhouse gas emissions and carbon sequestration in agricultural soil.
- Quantification of the impact of land application of swine manure on nutrient (N and P loss) to surface water.
- Quantification of the impact of crop rotation on crop nitrogen use efficiency and environmental N loss as influenced by nutrient management strategy.
- Examination of the influence of crop management on C and N biogeochemical cycling.
- Examination of the role of land application of manure in movement of bacterial pathogens in surface waters and transfer to locations/substrates that increase risk to human health.
- Examination of fate and transport of pharmaceuticals/antibiotics from animal waste in soils and to surface water.
- Comparative analysis of C, N and water economies of candidate biofueld cropping systems: Productivity and environmental impacts.
