Unformatted text preview: Row Crop: treated with 10-10-10 fertilizer. Undisturbed: just soil left alone. Results Results What is the green part in the green water? What caused the water to turn green? Why is the water more green in some results than others? Averages (ppm) Undisturbed: 10 ppm Unfertilized: 30 ppm Fertilized: 40 ppm Impervious: 20 ppm Row crop: 50 ppm Applying BMPs to Ag From your BMP worksheet, devise an action plan to improve water quality in your given scenario. For example, what BMP(s) could be applied to Row Crop land to improve water quality? Think of another question that would require further experimentation. Essential Questions What are Best Management Practices? How are BMPs implemented into agriculture?...
