New Report: Managing Ag Lands for Clean, Safe Water
Pennsylvania Ag Connection - 08/07/2020

Agriculture is one of the primary sources of pollution in rivers, streams, lakes, bays, and wetlands in the United States. More frequent and severe wet weather in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, an effect of climate change, is exacerbating the problem.

In PASA Sustainable Agriculture's new report, we examine both the challenges and opportunities agriculture offers for improving water quality and, in turn, human and environmental health.

The Harrisburg, Pa., based organization also explores why implementing sustainable farming practices--like planting cover crops, rotationally grazing livestock, and maintaining riparian buffers--is one of the most straightforward and cost-effective solutions available for alleviating water pollution.
