Texas has developed a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for Phosphorous (P) in segments of the Upper North Bosque River (UNBR) which includes a mandate for a 50% reduction of soluble reactive P. The watershed’s primary agricultural activity is dairy production and large quantities of manure are produced. One suggested Best Management Practice (BMP) is the export of P from impaired watersheds using turfgrass sod produced with composted dairy manure. The sod produced by this BMP would be… CONTINUE READING
