SERA-17 is a group of scientists, educators, policy makers, and extension personnel collaborating to reduce phosphorus loss from agriculture. I visited their conference and tagged along on a boat and field tour for an update on the research project. The project is supported by the 4R Research Fund and includes efforts to educate farmers on the benefits of implementing 4R Nutrient Stewardship practices to help reduce phosphorus runoff. Dr. Tom Bruulsema provides a quick overview of the group’s goal. To learn more about our work in the Lake Erie region click here. Warning: we’re on a boat.
