Public Policy Group: NW Ohio Farmers Helping Reduce Algae Bloom in Lake Erie

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A voluntary effort by farmers in the Lake Erie watershed in northwest Ohio has reduced the amount of fertilizer being used.

And that’s helping to reduce the level of algae blooms in the lake.

That’s according to the public policy organization Scioto Analysis, which indicates the H-2-Ohio program passes the cost-benefit test.

The Ohio Farm Bureau has advocated for its continued expansion in other parts of the state in the budget process.
