About this project

Leroy Waugh planted 183.6 acres of cover crops to reduce runoff of water, sediments, and nutrients, as well as to add nutrients back into the soil, as well implementing no till production on the same acres.  He also installed 30 feet of lined outlet (grassed waterway) to help reduce runoff from sediment and water. This project was in collaboration with The Watershed Foundation and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.
