I recently saw a newspaper article “Tracking Phosphorous Fresh from the Farm” written by Spencer Hunt (firstname.lastname@example.org) from The Columbus Dispatch Sunday May 26, 2013 9:03 AM and I found it to be a good read. There are great things going on to help farmers do their best to be good stewards of the land and resources.
This excerpt gives the gist of the article:
The study could be key to devising plans to reduce phosphorus runoff from farms. Farm groups, including the Ohio Soybean Council, the Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association, and the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, have matched a $1 million USDA grant to fund the effort.
Congratulations to the great folks in Ohio who are making this happen and thanks to the Columbus Dispatch for reporting on this.
