Developing an Assessment of Potential Reduction in Nitrate Leaching

Title – Dveloping an Assessment of Potential Reduction in Nitrate Leaching

Project Leader  – Jimmy R. Williams, Ph.D.

Activities –

  1. Work is underway to enhance EPIC’s capabilities for simulating winter cover crops as a means of reducing nitrate leaching.
  2. Testing the current EPIC with data from several sites in MD that represent a range in soils and cover crop varieties.
  3. Modify EPIC to produce realistic estimates of crop growth, water use, N uptake, and N leaching.
