Water drainage is critical for farms in the Midwest. But farmers don’t usually receive comprehensive and unbiased information about water management and drainage solutions, and have to focus on short-term costs instead of long-term equity. Taking a holistic and objective approach can improve farms and water quality, as explained in this episode with Quint Shambaugh, Co-Founder of DIGS Associates. Quint discusses the opportunities to address agricultural drainage across a watershed, bring farms together on projects, reduce nutrient pollution, and help the health of local waterways and the Mississippi River.
