Some areas of the Central Valley of California exhibit undesirably high concentrations of nitrate in groundwater. It is in the shared interest to identify means by which the future extent of these areas of high concentration can be reasonably minimized.

This website is a compilation of links to publicly-available tools and information related to nitrogen/nitrates as it relates to agricultural management practices. This list of links has been compiled as an initial list of resources for growers and advisors, and is not intended to be comprehensive.

Topics Include:
• General information about the history and background of the problem
• Resources for nitrogen planning and management, including crop-specific information, and 
• Irrigation planning and management
