May contain: book and publication
  • Grant timeline January 2010 – December 2012
  • Grant dollars: $6,407  Match: $9,542  Total: $15,949
  • This proposal is for the implementation of a pilot project that focuses on drainage water management via the installation of controlled drainage systems. Such systems have proven to significantly reduce water volumes, total phosphorus and nitrate export to receiving waters while improving crop yields. The program employs a plot study to quantify the impact of controlled drainage systems in West-Central Minnesota, the long term goal of which will be to promote a broader acceptance of such practices in the region.
