Dubuque County Land Stewardship Initiative

The Dubuque County Land Stewardship Initiative aimed to create healthy watersheds in Dubuque County by managing the land to improve water quality, ensure flood resiliency, and mitigate climate impacts. The project measured changes in nutrient loss, soil erosion, soil quality, and net greenhouse gas emissions on participating fields, and reported the implementation of new conservation practices and management changes like cover crops, reduced tillage, and improved nutrient management.
