Description Soil erosion and pollution from agricultural pesticides and fertilizer have plagued the wheat-growing regions of eastern Washington State since the native prairie was converted to farmland. With the help of the State Revolving Fund, a group of farmers is using a new wave of direct seed technology that is reducing erosion, improving soil health, and encouraging more efficient use of water and fertilizer, and fuel.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
