Drainage water site in Story County
Nutrient Management

Title:  Bayer-ISU Water Quality Partnership

Location:  Story County

Time Period:  2018-present

Research Team:  Sortirios Archontoulis, Mike Castellano, and Matt Helmers

Project Description:  Advances in cropping systems technology – including genetics and management – have the potential to increase crop productivity and improve water quality. This project uses a research site that includes 48, half-acre, independently drained plots that were donated by Bayer and The Climate Corporation. This research infrastructure has created an unprecedented ability to understand how future advances in genetics and management can be used to improve water quality. 


Funders:  Bayer and Iowa State University
