Monitoring Farm Runoff to Evaluate Conservation Practices

There is an urgent need to evaluate and document the effectiveness of BMPs in the Lake Champlain Basin so that the most effective practices may be emphasized and reasonable assurance may be provided that plans to achieve phosphorus TMDL targets will be successful.  In 2012, Stone began working with the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food, and Markets (VAAFM), in cooperation with USDA-NRCS, on an edge-of-field monitoring study to evaluate several innovative BMPs currently promoted by VAAFM and USDA.  This work continues today.
