The 2013 Wisconsin Nutrient Strategy identifies $51.8 million of annual funding related to nutrient management activities in Wisconsin from state and federal programs.
Progress toward the goals of enhancing, better coordinating, and reporting on outcomes is tracked within annual progress reports. The first Implementation Progress report, published in 2017, provides a comprehensive description of statewide efforts to reduce nutrient losses to Wisconsin’s surface waters. The report highlights how agricultural communities employing farmer-led efforts to minimize nutrient losses can remain profitable. The report also indicates that developing a tracking tool to better record implementation of conservation practices is a top priority for ensuring that the strategy achieves its goals.
