Researchers find losses of nutrients, greenhouse gases from poorly drained depressions higher than predicted

February 11, 2021

AMES, Iowa — With the help of an innovative new monitoring system, Iowa State researchers looking at nitrogen and phosphorus losses to water and the atmosphere are able to pinpoint nutrient fluxes better than many previous studies. In the process, they are refining knowledge of where – and when -- to expect nutrient-loss hot spots.  Read more about Researchers find losses of nutrients, greenhouse gases from poorly drained depressions higher than predicted
