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.

The Discovery Farms Programs in Minnesota and Wisconsin concluded a conservation innovation grant project focused on water quality and soil health on tile drained fields in the fall of 2020. We are ready to bring to you key lessons learned from this project and how the data can be used in future strategies to meet water quality and soil health goals.
