The work was begun in 1975 as one of several studies of U.S. and Canadian watersheds draining to the Great Lakes. The Maumee River Basin is the largest of the Great Lakes watersheds and contributes the highest loads of sediments and nutrients. The study was to monitor sediment and nutrient losses from several small watersheds in the Maumee River Basin. The tillage method studied was fall moldboard or fall chisel plowing. No-till and No-till ridges were also examined. The watershed studies were supplemented with a detailed examination of the effects or residue cover on soil and phosphorus losses using the programmable rainfall simulator of the National Soil Erosion Laboratory at Purdue University.
