Your students can practice the skills data scientists use as they examine real data from Ohio farmers.
With water quality directly impacting Ohio’s agriculture, environment, and economy, it makes sense for farmers to adopt best practices for both protecting water and producing high yields. Scientists (such as those in your classroom) may ask, have farmers’ efforts helped water quality? How have phosphorus reductions changed from 2021 to 2022?
Using real Ohio data, your students can examine the change in phosphorus reductions and draw conclusions about how farmers affect water quality.
