Identifying Best Management Practices and Barriers to Adoption
The identification of barriers and solutions are the most important output to affect the efficiency and effectiveness of on-the-ground practices. Identification and assessment of barriers will enable a greater communication and build strong partnerships.

The purpose of this project is to identify effective irrigation and nutrient management best management practices and technologies and the barriers that prevent irrigators, producers, and other agricultural partners from adopting them in Otter Tail County. The primary goal is to reduce nitrate in areas where groundwater is susceptible to contamination as mapped by The Minnesota Department of Health by identifying effective BMPs and addressing the barriers to their adoption.
