Conservation practice adoption is well-documented for practices that are implemented with federal or state financial assistance. Yet, while it is known that farmers adopt water quality protection practices without public financial support, there is no systematic accounting for these investments. In consequence, these self-financed practices are not accounted for in tracking the progress towards water quality goals, including cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay. This webinar reports on one initiatives recently undertaken to this data gap, a survey of water quality practice adoption by Pennsylvania farmers located in the Chesapeake Bay watershed conducted in 2016. Background, survey methodology, statistical analysis and results are discussed.
