Using edge-of-field research from the Ohio State University (OSU), the Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) will collaborate with USDA's Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (OFSWCD) to identify a suite of agricultural best management practices (BMPs) to be promoted across the basin.

Although the BMPs will be encouraged across the basin, there will be a priority to place BMPs in targeted watersheds.
