Weather to spread? CALS-built website helps farmers gauge runoff risk

manuremapWisconsin dairy farmers who are waiting for a safe time to spread manure are seeing red. That’s if they’re visiting, a DNR website created by a team in CALS to help farmers spot the times when it’s safe to spread manure on the land. A good bit of the state is red, indicating there’s a high risk of runoff right now due to the melting of the winters’ near-record snowpack.

Two of the three developers of the website—web developer Rick Wayne and researcher Laura Ward Good, both in soil science—talked about the project with CALS podcaster Sevie Kenyon.
