Does Regulating Farmers Work? Lessons from Three Chesapeake Bay State Nutrient Management Laws (PDF) (51pp, 1.7MB) April 2012
Abstract, speaker bio and presentation

Highlights from her dissertation: "Does the policy-making process affect farmer compliance? A three-state case study of nutrient management regulations" and lessons learned about regulating nonpoint source agricultural nutrient pollution.

In 1997, a series of fish kills were linked to the toxic micro-organism Pfiesteria piscicida. In response, Maryland, Virginia and Delaware enacted state laws requiring farmers to obtain and follow a nutrient management plan. To find out how well farmers were following their plans and whether the policy process affected their willingness to comply, Michelle interviewed 60 farmers on the Delmarva Peninsula who grew corn and used poultry manure as a fertilizer. She also interviewed over 60 policy stakeholders and evaluated eight years of compliance data from the state regulatory agencies.
