AMES, Iowa–Iowa Learning Farms hosted a webinar on Wednesday, Jan. 15 at 12 p.m. about the Iowa Nutrient Research Center.
Matt Helmers, director of the Iowa Nutrient Research Center, discussed the center and some of the impacts from research projects funded by the center, as well as current activities. The funded research focuses on nutrient export from agricultural lands and the performance of conservation practices. The research increases the understanding of nutrient reduction practices’ performance and development of new methods for reducing nutrient loss.
“The center is interested in hearing from stakeholders what they think are the most pressing research questions,” said Helmers.
