Summers along the Great Lakes include fishing, boating and dangerous algae blooms that can shut down beaches. They're are caused by excess phosphorous, a lot of which comes from farms. Now some of the region's farmers are testing agricultural practices that could reduce harmful runoff.
Duane Stateler and his son, Anthony, run Stateler Family Farms, one of a handful of demonstrations farms across the country. Over the next five years, three farms in Northwest Ohio will test different practices to find out what reduces phosphorus runoff.
