NITRATE AND WATER QUALITY
How does nitrate get into our water? How can we keep it in our farm fields where it can do the most good? This animated video explains how nitrate affects water quality and how farming practices can help.
Truly resilient farms and communities need clean water. While we have to safeguard our water supply against many contaminants, one of our biggest problems is nitrate. In much of the Midwest, that water starts its journey by falling on farmland, meaning that the solutions to solving the nitrate problem start in agriculture.
However, the problem is complex - most of the processes are not visible to the naked eye. Water that's high in nitrate looks pretty much the same as any other water. This animated video paints the picture of that microscopic process and helps audiences understand the issue in order to come up with fixes that make sense.
