Freshwater Science: Understanding and (Potentially) Mitigating the Impacts of Tile Drainage
Recent research from across the Midwest shows that with drainage water management, which uses tile drainage to control and adjust water flow from fields, annual nitrogen loads in field runoff can be reduced by as much as 50% while increasing crop yields. A similar result might be possible for phosphorus, with can fuel harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie.
Dr Steve Lyon at The Ohio State University is examining how this tile drainage impacts other water flow in agricultural fields, to better understand overall runoff and nutrient flows.
