Research Project: Conservation Effects Assessment Project (Ceap) 2013 - ARS Benchmark Watershed Assessment Studies (On Croplands)

Location: Grassland, Soil and Water Research Laboratory

Project Number: 3098-13610-007-40
Project Type: Interagency Reimbursable Agreement

Start Date: Jun 01, 2013
End Date: Sep 30, 2015

Objective:
Principal focus of the CEAP Watershed Studies is to evaluate the effects and benefits of conservation practices at the watershed scale, in support of policy decisions and program implementation.

Approach:
The effects of conservation activities on water and soil quality will be assessed at the watershed scale using models such as ARS' Soil and Water Assessment Tool, in combination with ARS long-term watershed data sets, expertise, and resources. Specifically, this project will collect small watershed-scale data to analyze and develop innovative nutrient management alternatives and determine their impacts on the environment and on-farm economics.
