BMP Quiz – Phosphorus Edition

Best Management Practices for PhosphorusHave you got any of the OMAFRA BMP books on your shelf? Have you picked one up somewhere and have been meaning to look through it? I just spent a few minutes looking at Best Management Practices for Phosphorus (only 8 pages!) and Best Management Practices for Reducing Phosphorus from Agricultural Sources (A Phosphorus Primer).

No doubt that they are topical resources. For one thing, you might be interested in a stewardship project on your farm to reduce phosphorus loss. If you are in the Lake Erie, Lake St. Clair, or Lake Huron southeast shores watersheds, you might be accessing Great Lakes Agricultural Stewardship Initiative (GLASI) funding. Phosphorus, whether agricultural or from other sources has been making the news regularly. Maybe you get asked about phosphorus or algae blooms by non-farmers.

Here’s a quick pop up quiz on some information from these publications, to inspire you to read more and to see what else you can do on your farm.
