Agricultures Effect on Algae Blooms

Everyone in my group is asking the same question, does agriculture play an effect on algae blooms. I find this topic very relatable due to the fact I am from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, which is known for agriculture. The group decided that this topic would be a comfortable choice because we have all learned about Algae Blooms previously.
