Subsurface Drainage in Iowa and the Water Quality Benefits and Problem
It is estimated that there are approximately 3.6 million ha of land with artificial subsurface drainage in Iowa, with 2.4 million ha of that within the 3000 organized drainage districts (total landExpand

Seasonal changes in flow and nitrate-N loss from subsurface drains
Subsurface drainage from thirty-six, 0.4-ha plots was monitored for three years (1990 to 1992) from chisel plow, moldboard plow, ridge till, and no-till systems with continuous corn and corn-soybeanExpand

Nitrogen Application Rate Effect on Nitrate-Nitrogen Concentration and Loss in Subsurface Drainage for a Corn-Soybean Rotation
Excess precipitation in Midwest agricultural production areas is often removed artificially via subsurface drainage systems that intercept and divert it to surface waters. Nitrogen (N), eitherExpand
