Water Quality Projects at the Uthe Farm

By Ethan Thies

Abstract

The Committee for Agricultural Development, along with the USDA-NRCS, IDALS, USDA-NLAE, Iowa Soybean Association, and ISU Research Farms, has begun the installation of three water quality projects at the Uthe Farm in Boone County, Iowa. The projects are located along Big Creek, and will focus on nutrient removal of tile water entering Big Creek, and the water already in Big Creek. The projects include a saturated buffer, oxbow wetland, and bioreactor. With multiple conservation practices in close proximity, there will be great opportunity for field days that show the practices to landowners and farmers. Allowing the participants to see and evaluate multiple water quality improvements allows participants to see which practices could best be applied to their own land
