A collaborative partnership between researchers with USDA’s Agricultural Research Service and Iowa State University has produced a string of notable water quality studies that have influenced conservation research and practice nationwide.
The relationship has leveraged multiple benefits. ARS scientists choose projects that offer opportunities linked to their national program goals and gain an eager cadre of graduate students to support federal research. For the university, the presence of ARS’ National Laboratory for Agriculture and the Environment (formerly known as the Soil Tilth Lab) has attracted additional resources and attention, often providing a national stage for local innovation.
