USGA Summary Points:Aerification reduced the total amount of N and P lost to surface water during the first 70 minutes after rainfall began, but after prolonged, heavy periods (>70 min) of rainfall, nutrient runoff from the aerified plots did not differ significantly from the control plots. The total amount of applied fertilizer potentially lost to surface water was low (<1%). Although aerification reduced the total runoff volume and nutrient losses, nutrient concentrations in runoff did not differ between treatments. This study implies that frequent aerification is likely to reduce nutrient runoff over the course of a growing season, but has no effect during a single heavy rainfall event.
