Dr. Jacqueline Comito is our special guest for this edition of Clean Water Radio, focusing on the central role farmers play in cleaning up our state's waters. Jackie co-manages Iowa Learning Farms, an ISU Extension program which conducts farm days for farmers and on-farm research, and she directs Water Rocks!--an education program that brings music and children into the mix. We talk to Tim Smith, a farmer who discovered that the runoff from his farm was not as nutrient-free as he would like, and Roger Wolf of the Iowa Soybean Association, who describes the organization's water monitoring program and expresses its evidence-based philosophy for Iowa's Nutrient Reduction System.
