Harmful Algal Blooms and Agricultural Nutrients: State Responses to a Growing Issue

Science points to runoff from agricultural fields as a cause of elevated levels of Nitrogen and Phosphorous in our nation’s waterways, leading to Harmful Algal Blooms, hypoxia and other water quality issues. In this webinar, Hall will present an overview of different approaches states are taking to address water quality impacts from the surface application of agricultural nutrients, from voluntary to mandatory efforts.  Hall will highlight the most recent and innovative state-based efforts, share data on water quality improvements related to reduction efforts and analyze how different approaches may impact agricultural producers.
