A recent Columbus Dispatch article (12/22), "Curbing Fertilizer Runoff a Challenge" features Professor Warren Dick's research on gypsum and in particular how it may capture phosphorus and prevent it from washing off the fields.  Eugene Braig, program director for aquatic ecosystems in the SENR at Ohio State University is also quoted in the article.
