The Penn State Water Resources Extension is offering a free webinar on The Costs to Agriculture of Saving the Bay on Wednesday, 29 January. The webinar will highlight the recent study for the USDA Office of the Chief Economist on the costs of meeting the agricultural load allocations mandated by the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL).

The study addresses the agricultural costs of the Watershed Implementations Plans (WIPs) and the potential agricultural cost savings realized through Best Management Practices (BMPs). It also addresses the potential cost saving from nutrient trading.
