Every acre matters when it comes to reducing nutrient loss – that was the key message for more than 150 attendees at the Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy meeting held June 24 in Bloomington.

Farmers, farmland owners and agricultural professionals gathered to learn about the strategy and best management practices for fertilizer application. A few of the topics covered include:

The Illinois Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy provides a framework for reducing nutrient losses, improving local water quality and improving water quality learning the state and entering the Gulf of Mexico.

Scheduled for release in July, the strategy identifies targets to reduce phosphorus losses by 25% and the nitrate-nitrogen losses by 15% by 2025. The eventual goal is a 45% reduction.
