COLUMBUS- Three state agencies have launched the Ohio Clean Lakes Initiative to improve water quality and reduce Harmful Algal Blooms in the Western Basin of Lake Erie. HABs are threatening the ecological integrity of Lake Erie.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Department of Agriculture and Ohio EPA developed this initiative based on the findings of a report they released in March.
The Directors' Agricultural Nutrients and Water Quality Working Group report includes recommendations for the implementation of a 4R Nutrient Stewardship program, which promotes using the right fertilizer source, at the right rate, at the right time, with the right placement. Studies indicate that the timing of fertilizer application, and how well it is incorporated into the soil layer, significantly reduces dissolved phosphorus runoff.
