Introduction to concept of the tri-state demonstration projects on conservation tillage funded in 31 counties in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. The report discusses 1984 programs to reduce phosphorus loadings to the Lake Erie western basin as an effort to lower the phosphorus loads to meet terms of the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement of 1978 and its 1983 supplement. The report looks at the impact on phosphorus loadings to Lake Erie, the economic impact given the economic conditions of 1984, yields for the year and comparisons between crops and yields for conventional, no-till and ridge-till tillage.
