Drainage Water Management in the Corn Belt

Holding back drainage water in a field, with a water control structure, allows water to flow through longer pathways and seep into deeper soil layers. In addition to water quality benefits, it's possible that drainage water management also can boost crop yields and store water for times of drought stress.

Jane Frankenberger, a professor of agricultural and biological engineering at Purdue University and a principal investigator for the USDA-NIFA Sustainable Corn Project shares her research on this topic.

This resource is part of the USDA-NIFA funded project for climate and agriculture that gathered data from 35 field sites and thousands of farmers in 9 Midwestern states, with the goal of creating a suite of practices for corn-based systems.
