The purpose of the Yahara Field demonstration days is to promote and expand the usage of new innovative technologies that aid in phosphorus reduction to area agricultural producers.
Last year's event showcased best practices that have helped to reduce phosphorus in the Yahara Watershed. In 2013, Yahara Pride Farms members implemented nearly 2,500 acres of cover crops, 200 acres of strip tillage, 80 acres of vertical tillage, and 600 acres of vertical manure injection. All of these conservation practices improved soil stability, which reduces phosphorus runoff by an estimated one pound for every acre implemented. With one pound of phosphorus producing 500 pounds of algae, these conservation practices on 3,920 acres of land have the potential to prevent nearly 2 million pounds of algae in Wi's Yahara watershed.
