In this special episode of the Nutrient Management Podcast, Extension Educator Greg Klinger continues a discussion about the Root River Field to Stream Partnership in southeast Minnesota. He's joined by Kevin Kuehner from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture as they work to understand how much of the soil and nutrients that leave farm fields in the region actually end up in streams, rivers, and beyond.
Part Two shifts the focus to the larger Root River watershed, examining how a buildup of older sediment sources can muddy the waters, both literally and figuratively, for water quality. Greg and Kevin discuss the unexpected benefits of nuclear testing, regions trapped in their own history, when to focus on practices versus results, and making water walk instead of run.
