    UW Discovery Farms monitored water quality in the Jersey Valley and Dry Run watersheds for seven years. Soil, water and nutrient losses were measured from farm fields, a small city and natural areas. We learned four clear management implications:

    1. Tillage practices and landscape conditions influence soil loss
    2. Once soil loss is controlled, it’s important to pay close attention to factors like P accumulation at the surface
    3. Know when field management alone will not achieve nutrient loss goals
    4. Risk of nutrient loss from application timing isn’t limited to manure or winter
