Precipitation is generally plentiful in the Midwest, but the timing and amount of precipitation can lead to soil erosion, nutrient loss, and reduced crop yields. Integrated systems that address landscape and drainage water management such as subsurface tile drainage, cover crops, soil and water conservation practices, and new technology allow for sustainable crop production systems, enhanced nutrient use efficiency, and increased food production. Cropping systems that address the diversified landscapes in Missouri and enhance crop diversity increase the resiliency of cropping systems.
