Watch Nutrient Management & Water Quality Panel Discussion

Recently, AAI Public Relations Director and Agribusiness Report Lead Anchor, Ken Root conducted a panel interview on water quality issues and initiatives in the state of Iowa.  The panel members included Dr. Karl Brooks, Region 7 Administrator of the EPA, Bill Northey, Iowa Secretary of Agriculture, and Chuck Gipp, Director of Iowa Department of Natural Resources (Iowa DNR).

The conversation focused on the voluntary nutrient management efforts developed through the coalition of the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, the Iowa DNR and Iowa State University to address hypoxia concerns in the Gulf of Mexico. The participants provided many insights into the multiple issues related to reducing point-source and non-point source nutrient loads in the water supply.
