Soil and nutrient loss in southeast Minnesota - Part One

UMN Extension Nutrient Management Podcast show

Summary: In Part One of this special episode of the Nutrient Management Podcast, Extension educator Greg Klinger facilitates 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, and Ron Meiners, retired Root River Soil and Water Conservation District Manager.  The episode explores the question: How do you build a soil and water conservation project that brings everyone to the table? The podcast tackles the ideas of critical source areas, the needed density and intensity of soil conservation practices, sediment conveyor belts, and all the other things you learn when you walk over 8,000 acres of fields for conservation practices.  Thank you to the Minnesota Agricultural Fertilizer Research and Education Council (AFREC) for their support of this podcast.
