CONTROLLING TECHNOLOGIES ADOPTED FOR THE MINIMIZATION OF NON-POINT SOURCE POLLUTION FROM THE AGRICULTURE RUNOFFSRAVANI PERICHERLA, MANOJ KUMAR KARNENA AND VARA SARITHA
Nitrogen and phosphorus runoff from the croplands are the primary sources for the inputs of nutrients to the water causing eutrophication. Industrial releases from point sources can be managed by stringent rules and regulations. However non-point sources of pollution canot be stopped and there is a need for minimizing the pollution linked with it. Many researchers proposed several methods to treat the agricultural runoff like controlling at source, controlling at the process, and end of the treatment. In this current review, significant technologies used to manage agricultural runoff are summarized.
