Confluence Project: Bioreactors
The Successful Farming Confluence Project visits the Webster City, Iowa farm of Arlo Van Diest. Van Diest installed two bioreactors on his land to help decrease the nitrates in waterways.reactor but it's a very simple. Process of water group enters the wood chips . The practice. Has been well received by farmers. Number one they liked the idea that it has a small footprint it's aunderneath the buffer strip. We're -- that into a trench filled with wood chips . And those wood chips . Allow -- trade and and carbon you release today is nitrogen gas. The bar reactor practices. Is relatively new we have it as an entrance standard with the Natural Resources Conservation Service . And so farmers can receive car share on it. I was soybean association is been assisting. With that practice by measuring the101000 dollars a lot of it depends on the availability contractors. And wood chips and and structures and and it's it's kind of split up and a third through the structures that third for the wood chips and a third for. Contractors.

And we have winds that -- the atmosphere increased slightly warmer temperatures down in the ground enabling props to dot frost. Now what you don't have those conditions present the opposite is true and that in pre conditions conducive frost damage results. Now the good news this is that temperatures hitting highs -- sixties Japanese -- supposed to move in. Later. Early into next -- -- once we dodged this bullet. We should BO OK but just remember those two things cloud cover . And win and they can make -- difference whether -- crop it's they would like --
