A team composed of MSU’s professors and scientists will start working on a project to find ways that could help reduce farm pollution starting in July. The project, titled A Social-Ecological Analysis of Nitrogen in Agricultural Systems of the Upper Midwest, is fueled by a $1.46 million grant from the National Science Foundation and aims to propose solutions to reduce pollution caused by nitrogen in fertilizers, thereby helping not only the environment, but farmers, too.
