Irrigation and Water Quality on the Delmarva Peninsula: Providing food for 33 Million People  A clerical error in a small Delaware town led to a poultry production revolution which greatly altered both our farming practices and our diet. Subsequent changes in grain production dramatically raised field productivity, but the demand for increasing yields remains high.  This talk explores how irrigating cropland can help maintain high yields but may lead to water quality concerns.
