Select Conservation Practices Depending on Where you Farm (clay soils)

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. This presentation synthesizes 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 and University of Waterloo professor, Merrin Macrae, will describe how conservation strategies can be optimized at a regional scale.

Please join us to learn more about this latest research. Attendees will be able to choose between two sessions depending on whether they are interested in best practices for clay soils (November 29) or best practices for undulating sloping loams (November 30).
