Conservation tillage practices have been suggested as primary means of reducing non-point source phosphorus loadings to Lake Erie. Though research has shown that conservation tillage practices are feasible on many Lake Erie basin soils, adoption by farmers has been slow. Consequently, demonstration projects have been established in an attempt to speed adoption. Three large scale projects, the Honey Creek Watershed Project, the Allen SWCD Demonstration Project, and the Maumee Valley Demonstration Project are reviewed. Author
