Losses of major nutrients, nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P), from agricultural lands to water resources cause water quality concerns relative to the health of both humans and aquatic systems, and impair water resource uses. In addition to concerns for hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico, work is currently underway by the States with guidance from the U.S. EPA, to develop nutrient water quality criteria to be protective of local lakes and streams.
