Growing demand for agricultural products to supply food, feed, fiber, and fuel comes at a time of intensified pressure by the public as well as by local and federal government agencies to reduce the impacts of agricultural production on water quality and biodiversity. Midwest land under heavy agricultural production has been identified as a major contributor to nitrogen and phosphorus losses to downstream water systems and to hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico.
