Throughout the Puget Sound region of Northwest Washington, impacted and poorly managed agriculture has repeatedly been advanced as a leading contributor to air and water pollution. Improvements in field application methods and timing are necessary in order to protect important resources from further negative impacts. This study aimed to develop an innovative Application Risk Management (ARM) System that targets the transport of manure nutrients (N, P) and fecal coliform (FC) via runoff, leaching, and/or volatilization by promoting science-based assessment tools linked to measurable outcomes.
