Land and water resource resilience: Key metrics of water quality and soil health

PI: Dennis Busch


Busch is the Research Manager at Pioneer Farm at UW–Platteville. He is responsible for managing research projects that relate to the dairy pasture forage, surface water runoff and the Fever River, and supervises student researchers.

Busch’s project will update some of the surface-water runoff and soil health monitoring equipment at Pioneer Farm at UW–Platteville. These updates address farmer-led watershed group requests for better data collection for determining the effects and interactions of cover crop and manure management on water quality, soil health, and crop yield.
