Nutrient management practices are critical for reducing nutrient loads downstream. But what about the other benefits nutrient management practices provide outside of water quality improvement? Tune into this month’s The Current webinar to hear about the co-benefits of nutrient management practices including pollinator habitat, carbon sequestration, flood mitigation, and economics.
