Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to describe and quantify biologically labile and refractory nitrogen and phosphorus constituents, transformations, and loads in the runoff of two sub-watersheds exhibiting differing agricultural land-use practices. Runoff was impacted by intensive row-cropping for corn production in one of the watersheds while the other one was impacted by dairy livestock management.
