Protecting the Gulf

by The 100 Companies

The Gulf of Mexico Alliance recently received more than $1.4 million from the U.S. EPA’s Gulf of Mexico Division that’ll help northeast Louisiana farmers adopt innovative farming practices that reduce fertilizer runoff and, in some cases, enhance their cash crop. This work will continue through 2026.

When fertilizer enters local waterways, it can negatively impact wildlife, recreation (such as fishing and swimming) and water quality down to the Gulf, making the area known as “the dead zone” worse.

Read project details on the Alliance’s website and an explanation of connections to the dead zone in this article from NOLA.com.
