One Change In Farming Practice Makes For Cleaner Waterways

Summary:
An Ohio State University researcher compared pollutant emissions in 1985 to those 10 years later for two watersheds that drain into the lake. He then compared those results to how farming practices changed in the area during the same time. Water quality improved with the adoption of farming practices that reduced the amount of fertilizers and chemicals draining from farmers' fields into the lake.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Changes in farming practices have played a major role in improving water quality in Lake Erie, a recent study suggests. Farm-based pollution has dropped by as much as 50 percent in the region.
