This program was designed to engage farmers in the nutrient and water quality issues facing agriculture by providing information on possible nutrient losses from their production operations.
These results are simply a snapshot in time of ambient nutrient levels in water collected from tile drainage, surface runoff or nearby streams.
Nutrient levels in runoff water can vary greatly depending on the time of year, temperature, rainfall and in-field practices.
Testing is available for Farm Bureau members on Monday- Friday from 8:30 a.m.-4:00 pm at the Winnebago-Boone Farm Bureau.
Contact the Farm Bureau for more information at 815.962.0653
On March 2, 2016 NREC partnered with Illinois Farm Bureau to present a webinar that highlighted the research conducted by scientists at University of Illinois. The research focused on phosphorus runoff and how fertilizer application methods can impact the rate of runoff. The archived webinar can be viewed using the link below.
