The Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy and Your Farm Workshop was designed to provide farmers, landowners, and conservation professionals with information on the purpose, need, action items, and benefits of the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy and provide tools they can use to create a basic nutrient reduction plan for their farm operation.  The workshop utilizes modeling tools like the Nitrogen Load Estimate Calculator and Nutrient Tracking Tool to help estimate nutrient losses from row crop acres under current operating conditions, as well as after the incorporation of nutrient management practices.
