Description

The Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy is a science-based framework that identifies in-field, edge of field, and land use practices that minimize loss of nitrogen and phosphorus to surface water. In addition to reductions in agricultural non-point sources of nutrients, the strategy also identifies reductions for non-agricultural point sources such as municipal wastewater treatment plants. The Hypoxia Task Force identified a goal of reducing the total nitrogen and total phosphorus load by 45%. The Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy outlines the effectiveness of the identified agricultural practices to assist farmers in selecting practices individually or in combination to meet their nutrient reduction goals.
