Forty-seven ag retailers within the Great Lakes Basin (GLB) participated in our 2015 survey, and their voluntary efforts made a difference! We'd like to thank them for their participation, and invite all GLB ag retailers to participate in this confidential survey right now-just click here! 2015 was our fourth year collecting data from and reporting back to ag retailers in the Sandusky River Watershed, and our first year for the entire Great Lakes Basin. See key takeaways from the GLB results to the left.
This program is critically important for our industry to communicate ag retailer stewardship and what retailers are doing voluntarily to help solve water quality problems within the Great Lakes Basin - without additional regulations. By selling valuable products and services that are best management practices (BMPs), including soil sampling, precision ag and cover crops, ag retailers are making a difference!
By tracking and reporting the improvements of our industry, we can make regulators and the public aware of these voluntary efforts and how the power of the marketplace drives improvements.
