CAP Backers

Have you visited our CAP Backer page?

This group is a vital part to our organization.  The CAP Backer program was developed to assist in outreach and education efforts on Ohio’s WLEB water quality concerns.   Lake Erie is a source of drinking water for millions, home to more than half of the fish in the Great lakes, and a draw for tourists.  Despite the actions of many organizations as well as the actions that farmers have taken to improve soil health and reduce fertilizer runoff, nutrients still continue to contribute to water quality problems. The agricultural community has launched a proactive and responsible commitment aimed at the long-term improvement of Lake Erie’s water quality. This effort advocates the use of 4R’s: Right Source of Nutrients at the Right Time and Right Rate in the Right Place.
