Preserve Lake Erie, keep farms productive

Ohio State will be the lead partner on a new five-year, multimillion-dollar pilot watershed project in northwestern Ohio designed to demonstrate that agricultural conservation practices—if used on 70% of the farmland in a watershed, and evaluated on a watershed scale—can help achieve Lake Erie’s water quality goals. CFAES researcher Jay Martin will direct the project, set for the Shallow Run watershed in Hardin County.
