Agricultural drainage is a primary source of excessive nitrogen (N) in surface waters, leading to significant water quality problems in streams and estuaries in many locations around the world. Although there have been only a few field studies of the effect of drain depth and spacing on N loss to surface waters, the data that exist indicate that N loss increases as subsurface drains are placed closer together. Some simulation model studies agree with these trends, others do not. Published… CONTINUE READING
