Nitrates in Groundwater Webcast, May 18



Agriculture relies on the addition of nitrogen in the form of commercial fertilizers and manure to maintain current production levels. Nitrates, a form of nitrogen, can leach through the soil contaminating groundwater, potentially harming human health. Recent California studies reported that 96% of all nitrate leached to the groundwater comes from cropland. Nitrate issues from a regional perspective will be discussed in this webcast. Recent findings in California and the proposed solutions will be presented, as will nitrate issues in the Southeast, Midwest, and Intermountain West.



Presenters include:

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) has been submitted.
