Discovery Farms

Discovery Farms Logo

The Agriculture Water Quality Program (AWQP) centralizes and builds 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. Discovery Farms has contributed to the research and education on surface water quality impacts of agricultural practices, specifically knowledge on the timing and magnitude of soil and nutrient loss from cropped fields, based on weather and cropping system dynamics on Wisconsin farmland. Data generated from Discovery Farms research provides a robust basis for AWQP educational materials and outreach.
