Legacy Project

Farmer Driven Water Quality in Mississippi River Basin

Agricultural production using high-disturbance tillage, inefficient fertilizer application, and winter fallowing is a leading cause of the nutrient and sediment inputs driving hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico. The Wallace Center’s Farmer-Driven Water Quality project will conduct water quality monitoring and increase the use of conservation grazing best management practices in Wisconsin’s Kickapoo River Watershed to achieve reductions in phosphorus and turbidity.
