 New Blanchard River Demonstration Farms Videos

The Blanchard River Demonstration Farms Project, a 5-year initiative showcasing and demonstrating conservation practices that will help improve agriculture’s impact on downstream water quality, has released a new video series. These videos highlight the efforts being made on three northwest Ohio farms to learn about nutrient management and the many ways Ohio farmers can keep nutrients in the fields and out of the water.

The series includes four videos in all, and covers the water quality issue, in general, gives a background on what the project is all about, details the edge-of-field monitoring that is being conducted and outlines the recommended practices farmers need to implement to help reduce nutrient loss from their farm fields.
