Abstract

Throughout the Cornbelt eco-region, nitratenitrogen (NO3-N) is the most frequent pollutant exceeding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's maximum contaminant limits for municipal drinking water supplies. Agricultural fertilizers that leach or run off from row-cropped fields are the principal source of NO3-N. This potential contamination poses a health concern that is attracting increasing attention among the urban and rural populace alike.
