PARM and Clean Lakes Alliance are Working Together!


Clean Lakes Alliance has provided funding for PARM to gauge customer adoption of ag retailer products and services that retain nutrients on fields in the Yahara River Watershed. Through surveying, PARM will be able to identify areas where sales of these beneficial products and services can be increased, and provide resources to successfully achieve those goals.

PARM will offer educational resources and present at ag retailer meetings and field days to help support water quality in the Yahara River Watershed!

USDA Calling All Producers and Landowners to take 2017 Census of Agriculture!


The USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) is calling all producers, and/or landowners who lease to producers, to participate in the 2017 Census of Agriculture. If $1000 or more of agricultural products were produced and sold in 2017, then NASS urges you or your grower customers to take the survey. The Census is the only comprehensive source of agricultural data, and is used to inform decisions on farm policy, rural development and new farm technologies. The Census also provides information to help create assistance programs, loans and insurance programs for producers. Please help the ag industry by filling this important document out!
