Fertilizers

Poor farming practices result in large amounts of fertilizer being washed into rivers and lakes.  This creates algae blooms and large growths of other plants, which ultimately result in too much organic matter and oxygen consuming bacteria.  Farms and golf courses are places where fertilizer use is high.
