    The nutrient reduction game was developed by Jane Frankenberger, Purdue University and has since been adapted by the Iowa Soybean Association and others. The game helps individuals experience and analyze the kinds of changes needed to significantly reduce nutrients from agricultural land. In the spirit of One Water, help us pilot a new version of the nutrient reduction game that has both rural and urban components. The name of the game – working together to reduce water pollution using the resources allotted.
