Lots of Water Research from Clean WateR3

Chris Beytes
Clean WateR3, the federally funded specialty crops research initiative, is focused on helping you Reduce, Remediate and Recycle your irrigation water (those are the R3). A quick stop at their website, cleanwater3.org, revealed a slew of new research articles, including topics such as:
 
• Test Your Irrigation Water for Phytophthora
 
• Removal of Paclobutrazol from Irrigation Water using Granular Activated Carbon
 
• Where Do Nutrients Go When You Irrigate?
 
• A Cost Analysis for Using Recycled Irrigation Water in Container Nursery Production
 
Visit cleanwater3.org/research.asp to read these and many more. And be sure to check out their “Tools” and “Ask an Expert” sections, too. GT
