Discovery Farms®, a program of UW-Madison Division of Extension, is a farmer-led research and outreach program focused on the relationship between agriculture and water quality. The program is unique in that it conducts research on privately-owned farms throughout Wisconsin, working with the U.S. Geological Survey to gather credible and unbiased water quality information from monitored sites.

Balancing water quality tradeoffs from farm management decisions

The Discovery Farms Annual Conference is back. This year we will utilize our robust dataset from water quality monitoring over the last 20 years to assess tradeoffs of on farm management decisions. Mitigating risk to water quality might look different on every farm but every farm has areas that can be improved. Join us for this one day event in Wisconsin Dells as we take a deep dive into our data and discuss farm management strategies for balancing water quality tradeoffs to on farm management decisions.
