Improving Bioreactor Design and Performance
Thursday, June 17 (1pm - 2pm)
Denitrifying woodchip bioreactors route tile drainage water through a trench filled with woodchips or other carbon materials to encourage the natural denitrification or conversion of nitrate to dinitrogen gas, which makes up the majority of our atmosphere. Bioreactors and other edge-of-field practices are key to reducing nitrate losses from Iowa’s agricultural landscape to local water bodies and beyond.
