4R Technology Field Day Helps Prevent Ohio Waterway Pollution

The event was held yesterday in Forest, Ohio

In an effort to educate farmers about reduction of nutrients and sediment loss in the Ohio waterways, the Ohio Agribusiness Association and various other agriculture organizations held the 4R Technology Review Field Day Tuesday.

One of the various conservation efforts is the Blanchard River Demonstration Farms, a five-year, $1 million project between the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation and United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service.

The project selects farmers and requires them to conduct public demonstrations on their farms for a duration of five years. The hope is to help producers find the right combination of practices to help reduce nutrient and sediment loss into Ohio waterways.
