Changing Management of Nutrients in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed

The objective of this webcast will be to outline highlights of water quality data and political drivers that will shape the future of agricultural nutrient management in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. While some improvements in water quality have occurred we will point out shortfalls in improvement goals and areas where improvement is targeted. Policies are changing for all sources of nutrients and sediment in the watershed, both agricultural and non-agricultural. We will provide an update on implementation of Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) policy and how the six states in the watershed are helping to meet water quality targets. After starting out with watershed-wide issues we will end with how policies may impact producers on a smaller sub-watersheds scale. An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.
