A recent US EPA National Water Quality Inventory reports that agricultural nonpoint source (NPS) pollution is seriously impacting the water quality of surveyed rivers and lakes.
That considered, what farming practices do you think should be implemented to protect and maintain water quality?
I think practices of eliminating any water run off at all should be implemented and the ability to answer with multiple choices
It depends on what kind of pollution you are considering. I mean, in Brazil, the main pollution source is the domestic sewage disposed directly in the creeks and rivers at the rural areas and this polluted water is used to irrigate vegetables. Our last research confirms 100% of fecal coliforms on the vegetables. When you talk about US and some European countries you will find a completely different cenario.
