The February 18 program will feature Mark Seger, Ohio Department of Agriculture Engineer for Northwest Ohio discussing the implementation of H2Ohio. Through collaboration among the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, Ohio Department of Agriculture, and Ohio Lake Erie Commission, H2Ohio will address critical water quality needs and support innovative solutions to some of the state’s most pressing water challenges. This new initiative was recently rolled out by Ohio Governor DeWine to impact phosphorus reduction by using cost share incentives to help producers get practices on the land to improve water quality statewide. Practices that Seger will address include variable-rate fertilization, subsurface nutrient application, manure incorporation, conservation crop rotation, cover crops, and drainage water management. Information will be presented to put plans into practice locally, utilizing cost share funds administered through this program.
