AbstractBioreactors play a prominent role in the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy’s goals to achieve 41 percent nitrate reduction from non-point sources. Two of the three detailed scenarios in the Nutrient Reduction Strategy incorporate heavy adoption of bioreactors; one with 60 percent of tile drained land treated, and one with 70 percent of tile drained land treated. With a push for increased bioreactor installation, field research to evaluate and improve bioreactor design and function is invaluable.
