Interdisciplinary Collaboration focus of recent Columbus Dispatch article

Dec. 21, 2016
A recent article in The Columbus Dispatch discusses Field to Faucet, an interdisciplinary collaboration of Ohio State scientists to study and find solutions for harmful algae blooms affecting lakes and rivers in Ohio’s western water basin. 
 
Robyn Wilson, associate professor in the School of Environment and Natural Resources is one of the collaborators working to reduce phosphorus, the nutrient that feeds toxic algae. She and her colleagues have been conducting surveys of farmers to identify practices farmers in the basin have adopted that, according to their scientific models would help to reduce phosphorus discharge into Lake Erie.
