  Nutrient runoff and discharges continue to result in degraded water quality and threats to drinking water sources and aquatic habitat. Agriculture is practiced on a large part of Ohio's landscape.

OSU researchers and agency staff, with partners, are very focused on improving tools and guidance ag producers can use
