Nutrient Reduction Best Management Practices in Cold Climates
Wednesday, April 14th at 2pm CT
In April 2019 partners across the Red River Basin of the North came together for a workshop to examine the available research on the effectiveness and suitability of nutrient reduction agricultural beneficial management practices (BMPs) in cold climates. Our April edition of The Current Webinar series will feature three workshop organizers who will discuss the workshop, how it came together and why more discussion around nutrient reduction BMPs in cold climates is needed. Speakers will also share the main research gaps identified and the BMPs the group broadly agreed were highly effective in reducing N and/or P loading in the basin.
