The Agriculture Water Quality Program is the UW-Madison Division of Extension Agriculture Institute’s newest addition. Recognizing the growing need for innovation, research, and education to help solve the water quality challenges facing agricultural producers in Wisconsin, our Program adds additional support and structure for new collaborations and initiatives to conduct research and education to improve water quality related to agricultural production for farmers, crop advisors, and conservation professionals.

We will build on the research, knowledge, and experience of faculty and staff in Extension that have been working on this issue, including Extension’s very successful Discovery Farms® Program. Core efforts will help audiences understand the relative benefits of practices to watershed and water quality protection, groundwater/surface water interactions, and other resource benefits. The Program is a hub for internal and external partners in all related fields to collaborate.
