 Priority agricultural watersheds were computed by Chesapeake Bay Program partners using nutrient SPARROW model results

Detailed Description

Priority agricultural watersheds were computed by Chesapeake Bay Program partners using nutrient SPARROW model results. The identification of priority agricultural watersheds helped to direct Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund grants to areas that contribute the greatest yields of total nitrogen and total phosphorus to Chesapeake Bay (National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, 2012). This and other similar maps allow Government agencies and nonprofit groups to focus limited resources where they are likely to have the greatest impact.
