Sometimes figuring out which conservation practices are most effective at reducing agricultural phosphorus losses to surface water bodies seems impossibly complex, and it is hard to know which solutions will work best where. Water Institute member, professor Merrin Macrae, is offering two upcoming pubic presentations that synthesize research from over a decade of on-farm, edge-of-field trials within the Lake Erie watershed to highlight how the efficiencies and trade-offs of different practices vary by region and site.

Drawing on a recently published article entitled "One Size Does Not Fit All: Towards Regional Conservation Practice Guidance to Reduce Phosphorus Loss Risk in the Lake Erie Watershed," lead author professor, Merrin Macrae, will describe how conservation strategies can be optimized at a regional scale.
