What are you doing to practice and promote soil and water quality?
Practices include using buffer strips along creeks and waterways; established waterways, planted pollinator plots, apply fertilizer by variable rate as well as anhydrous ammonia with stabilizer, minimum tillage in bean stubble and scouting crops prior to any pesticide use.
What else is being done in your county to support soil and water quality?
Cover crops are gaining usage.
What could be done with more public funding for soil and water quality?
I'd like to see usage of bioreactors and water/tile control features as well as more usage of cover crops.
