Annual conservation practices survey: A look at the numbers
By Steve Richter, agricultural strategies director, The Nature Conservancy
Members of Sheboygan River Progressive Farmers complete a survey each winter to gauge interest in soil health practices. It's an annual recap of the number of farmers using conservation practices on their fields and a tally of total acres of each practice. In this article, I'll share some highlights from 2019. In your next newsletter, I will talk more specifically about how the practices farmers are using are keeping soil and phosphorus from entering our waters.
