SIMULTANEOUSLY BENEFIT OUR Economy AND Water Quality
To reach the goals of the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy, it will take millions of acres of cover crops and tens of thousands of edge-of-field conservation drainage practices. In order to reach those numbers, Iowa will need substantially more cover crop seed growers, seed cleaners, custom applicators, trucks, drills, high-clearance interseeders, aerial application equipment, operators, contractors, equipment suppliers, and more.
These and other economic opportunities will increase jobs across Iowa. The Conservation Infrastructure initiative seeks to continually engage new partners to increase the number of participants. Is your business or organization ready to make a positive impact on Iowa's economy while improving water quality?
