Abstract A review of the available published literature shows that little information on NPS water pollution and agricultural BMP's exists and much research remains necessary. Under a recent EPA contract, 'Development planning and research associates, Inc., (DPRA), of Manhattan, Kansas, evaluated the cost-effectiveness of 'Best management practices and public owned treatment works in controlling phosphorus pollution.' DPRA's study reviewed recent published literature and estimated the cost effectiveness of various agricultural BMP's, including conservation tillage and contour farming and grassed waterways.
