The American Soybean Association (ASA) wants to hear your story about conservation. Farmers willing to share their stories about how conservation is a part of daily farm operations have a chance to be the next winner of the Conservation Legacy Award. The program is designed to showcase farm management practices of U.S. soybean producers that are both sustainable and profitable.
All U.S. soybean farmers are eligible and their entries will be judged on soil management, water management, input management, farmstead protection and conservation and environmental management. Three regional winners and one national winner will be selected. Applications must be submitted by September 2, 2016.
