When we get to those dry summer months, good soil hydrologic function is critical. We visited with Purdue University's Dr. Eileen Kladivko to talk about the remarkable effect night crawlers have on aiding water flow into and through soils.
Dr. Eileen Kladivko is a professor of Agronomy at Purdue University's College of Agriculture in West Lafayette, Indiana. She holds a master's degree in Agronomy from the same school, and a PhD in Soil Science from the University of Wisconsin. She is currently focusing her research work on environmental quality maintenance and agricultural sustainability, and she teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in soil physics.
