What we are doing

We work with ag retailers to improve management of our key soil, nutrient and crop-protection resources by keeping them on our cropland and out of our streams, rivers and lakes.

Why we are doing it

Ag retailers are key players in addressing nutrient runoff by ensuring their customers’ dollars stay on the field for crop nutrition, rather than running off into nearby waterways.


Our webinars present the latest nutrient management research and economic returns for ag retailer products and services that improve water quality.
