The impact of recent changes to nutrient management practices in raspberry fields on the loading and subsequent transport of nitrate through the vadose zone of the Abbotsford-Sumas aquifer is investigated numerically. Previous studies have shown that nitrate concentrations in the aquifer have remained relatively stable despite a shift in nutrient management practices. Using an estimate of net annual available nitrogen in fields that are fertilized using synthetic fertilizer, nitrate… CONTINUE READING
