Today’s Webinar: Bioreactors in the Spotlight

It’s Webinar Wednesday – tune in this morning at 9:00am for perspectives on bioreactors and their potential for benefiting water quality. This month’s Iowa Learning Farms webinar will coincide with the Midwest Ag Drainage Water Management series, thus the change of time from our usual afternoon webinar time slot.

With a focus on denitrifying bioreactors, today’s webinar is structured to provide both the perspective of the research/extension specialist and the farmer/practitioner. The featured speakers include Dr. Richard Cooke, Associate Professor in the Department of Agricultural Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Chad Ingels, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach watershed specialist and northeast Iowa farmer. Subsurface bioreactors have garnered a large amount of interest across the Midwest for their potential role in whole-farm nutrient management; they are highlighted as a key edge-of-field practice for reducing nitrogen export in the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy.
