Transforming Drainage: Managing water for tomorrow’s agriculture

Chris Hay

Another one of the presenters at this year’s Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) Research Conference was Chris Hay, senior environmental research scientist with ISA.  Hay discussed the Transforming Drainage project, which seeks to address important management questions through assessment and development of new agricultural drainage technologies.

According to Hay, the project is advancing three practices–controlled drainage, drainage water recycling and saturated buffers–for storing water in the landscape.

Hay discussed the project in an interview with Brownfield.  We also talked about the growing interest in “edge-of-field” nitrogen reduction practices.
