Abstract:

This presentation will summarize the 4 year Cooperative Agreement between the Michigan NRCS and the Michigan Tech Research Institute (formerly part of Altarum) that has focused on the integration of geospatial data to assess and quantify the effectiveness of farm conservation programs in the state. We will review projects from a small watershed scale (for the Upper Tiffin River CEAP project) to a statewide analysis of environmental factors affected by NRCS conservation programs. On the local scale, we have characterized and analyzed 2005-2007 water quality and land-use data to investigate how the Tiffin River study watershed responds to storm events and changing agricultural land use. On the statewide scale, we have completed an example of an Environmental Quality Index (EQI) that includes geospatial data on soil condition, surface water health, land habitat integrity, and air quality. Geospatial results came from imagery analysis, published models, and GIS data evaluation. We integrated the data into a user-accessible model with weightings based on expert NRCS input. The EQI tool can be used to compare environmental quality to levels of conservation effort, and includes examples of longer-term change for water quality and riparian habitat.
