Conservation-Legacy-Awards1The American Soybean Association wants to hear your conservation story. This news release from the group says those chosen could win a Conservation Legacy Award, recognizing U.S. soybean farmers who distinguish themselves through outstanding environmental and conservation practices, while remaining profitable.

Are you using a reduced tillage practice on your farm such as conservation tillage, strip-till or no-till? Do you grow cover crops? Have you taken steps to reduce soil loss or improve water quality? These are just a few conservation practices used on some farms today that help to produce sustainable U.S. soybeans. If you are using one of these practices or perhaps others, we want to hear about your accomplishments and you could win a Conservation Legacy Award.

Award Winners Receive:

An expense paid trip for two to Commodity Classic, March 3-5, 2016, in New Orleans, La.
Recognition at the ASA Awards Banquet at Commodity Classic.
A feature on your farm and conservation practices in Corn & Soybean Digest and a special online video.
New – Potential opportunity to join other farmer-leaders on a trip to visit international customers of U.S. soybeans.

The awards are sponsored by the American Soybean Association, BASF, Corn & Soybean Digest, Monsanto and the United Soybean Board/soybean checkoff. More information is available here. All applications must be submitted by Sept. 1, 2015.
