Menomonie — Every growing season, it’s a battle against geography for farmers who work the soil of Wisconsin’s Central Sands Region. Since glaciers dominated the landscape, the region’s deep sandy loam has proven challenging and water-intensive for agriculturists.

However, if a team of researchers at UW-Stout is successful, farmers will be able to lean on a data-driven model to calculate exactly how much water they’ll need to maximize yields from the sandy soil.
