Field Seeding to Cut Down on Pollution
A new partnership between Dane County and local farm families could help keep pollutants such as phosphorus out of the lakes.

One pound of phosphorus can result in 500 pounds of algae. So if Dane County can reduce the amount of phosphorus entering the lakes through the watershed by 820 pounds, well that is a lot of algae. That is the plan anyways with a new program that will pay farmers $40 per acre to plant winter rye seed over the corn crop so the rye can grow after the corn harvest, keeping a field full of vegetation.

The vegetation will keep snow melt and rain runoff from flowing into the Yahara Lakes Watershed reducing the amount of phosphorus entering area lakes.

7,400 Pounds of Phosphorus Removed From Lakes - About 7,400 pounds of weed-feeding phosphorus was diverted from reaching our waterways last year, according to the 2014 State of the Lakes annual report, released this week. That’s significant, because every pound of phosphorus can produce 500 pounds of lake algae.
