Iowa Corn growers farm sustainably to ensure their future in farming. A big part of that is an emphasis on clean water.
Having the safest, best-quality water for Iowa is important because their families – like every family – drink the water and enjoy using the state's lakes, rivers and waterways. That's why Iowa corn farmers are working to address water quality challenges head-on.
Iowa farmers are committed to making water quality and soil health a top priority. Gain insight from farmers all across the state who are implementing conservation practices on their farms.
A variety of annual and long-term conservation practices are used to help farmers maintain soil and water quality. Each farm is different, so various practices are used depending on the needs of each farm.
Iowa Corn is proud to partner with and support environmental initiatives and organizations to help protect Iowa’s land and water.
