Some weeks ago, this Top 10 Most-Watched Webinars series highlighted “Losing Ground,” hosted by Dr. Rick Cruse, professor of agronomy at Iowa State University and director of the Iowa Water Center.

2. The best farming technology we have still isn’t going to save the day if our soil is degraded.
3. Erosion is doing a lot more harm than the standard estimates might lead us to think.
