Farmer to Farmer Conservation Insights

Iowa Corn is leading the way in water quality initiatives. Current efforts include:

  • Engaging in unique initiatives like:

  • Soil Health Partnership which employs real-world, farmer-to-farmer education and encourage adoption of practices to support soil and water quality.

  • Iowa Agriculture Water Alliance, created and funded by Iowa Corn Promotion Board, Iowa Soybean Association and Iowa Pork Producers Association, works to increase farmer awareness and adoption of science-based conservation practices in priority watersheds in the state.

  • Iowa Nutrient Research & Education Council (INREC) proactively supports the adoption of the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy by bringing together nearly every segment of Iowa’s agriculture industry to help lead environmental efforts related to water quality.

  • Proactively communicating the positive steps farmers are taking to implement practices on their farms and engage in farmer-to-farmer discussions and education programs.
