Management Practices Roundtable
26-27, 2005 - Nebraska City, NE
The Heartland Water Quality Coordination
Initiative's Nutrient and Pesticide Management (NPM) Team
hosted a Nitrogen Best Management Practices (BMPs) Roundtable
at the Lied Lodge and Conference Center, located at the
Arbor Day Farm in Nebraska City, NE. This roundtable was
held on January 26-27, 2005.
The Nitrogen Roundtable consisted of 32 participants from
IA, KS, MO, and NE. These participants included university
researchers and state and federal agency personnel. The
NPM team hosted a similar Roundtable in 2004 regarding
Phosphorus BMPs and plan to do the same for pesticides
in 2006. Each of these roundtables will be followed by
a summer workshop. This workshop is designed to discuss
roundtable issues and to establish implementation procedures
throughout the state and county levels.
