About this project

Ronald Dunn planted 79 acres of cover crops to reduce runoff of water, sediments, and nutrients, as well as to add nutrients back into the soil, as well as implementing no till on those acres as well.  Ronald also installed 2 Water and Sediment Control Basins to help with gully erosion, and installed 670 feet of Underground Outlet (Tile) to help with runoff. This project was in collaboration with The Watershed Foundation and the Indiana Department of Enviromental Management.
