Supporting farmer-led conservation through better resources, tools
The Midwest Row Crop Collaborative is committed to supporting farmers and agricultural producers with better tools, data, and strategies to improve environmental outcomes. The Collaborative’s Steering Committee met this week at the Commodity Classic with organizations developing resources to strengthen farmers’ hands as they work to produce the food, fiber, and fuel our growing population needs.
We also were honored to hear directly from leaders working at the forefront of water quality and soil health, including Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey, Soil Health Partnership Director Nick Goeser, and Soil Health Institute President and CEO Dr. Wayne Honeycutt.
We look forward to continuing to work with these and other partners as we strive to support farmers’ efforts to improve water quality and soil health.
