Looking to improve your farm’s drainage? Familiar with drainage, but need a refresher? Overseeing or making decisions about drainage and want a more informed understanding yourself?

The videos provide a background on drainage and water quality from Iowa State University’s Matt Helmers, who is also director of the Iowa Nutrient Research Center; a primer on concepts and tools; a guide on planning from University of Missouri’s Kelly Nelson; topics on layout, management and more.
