Understanding the Nitrogen Optimization Pilot Program and what we've learned from our first season.
The Nitrogen Optimization Pilot Program (NOPP) is a collaboration with agricultural producers, Producer-Led Watershed Groups, University of Wisconsin System scientists, County Land & Water Conservation Departments, and other partners to conduct research projects that enhance the understanding of and refine new methods for optimizing nitrogen applied to agricultural fields and decreasing nitrogen loss to the atmosphere, groundwater and surface water. Hear from a local agronomist, Land and Water Conservation staff, and University of Wisconsin partners about two NOPP projects in the Red Cedar Watershed.
