Iowa farmers, families recognized as environmental leaders at Iowa State Fair
Iowa soybean farmers were represented at the second annual Iowa Farm Environmental Leader Award ceremony at the 2013 Iowa State Fair.
Sixty-two Iowa farmers and farm families — more than two-thirds were Iowa Soybean Association members — were recognized for their commitment to healthy soils and improved water quality. The awards are sponsored by Iowa Governor’s office, Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
The awards recognize farmers who serve as local leaders in environmental stewardship by utilizing a variety of techniques and best management practices. Examples include conservation tillage, restoring wetlands, installing grass waterways and using precision agriculture, among other things.
