Nitrogen fertilizers make it possible to feed more people in the world than ever before. However, too much of it can also harm the environment. Professor Eric Davidson, director of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science's Appalachian Laboratory, has been leading a group of scientists, economists, social scientists, and agriculture experts in figuring out how to produce more food while lowering pollution at the same time. He calls it a "Mo Fo Lo Po": more food, low pollution.

More pollution entering Chesapeake Bay than expected
Article Link Permanent Link

Annapolis, MD - The data released April 6 by the Chesapeake Bay Program, though incomplete, show that the agricultural sector has a long way to go in meeting Chesapeake Bay cleanup goals. Estimated loads of nitrogen and sediment from agriculture increased between 2013 and 2014, and are still millions of pounds shy of 2017 targets. Estimated loads of phosphorus are still incomplete because the model does not yet account for phosphorus-saturated soils.
