NLRS Biennial Report Important Evaluation to Drive New Support, Funding
After reading the results of the Illinois Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy Biennial Report, Marshall, IL farmer and IL Corn Growers Association Director Don Guinnip issued the following statement:
“IL Corn Growers Association farmer members, directors, and staff value the evaluation available to us via the NLRS Biennial Report. Without evaluation, it is impossible to identify progress. Farmers also understand that there are challenges in tracking and quantifying information like this, and we look forward to the Illinois Ag Retail Survey results to help us better understand the entire nutrient loss picture for Illinois.
“Each progress report helps Illinois agriculture better understand and amplify the needs of Illinois farmers for support – both expertise and financial resources – to help us achieve the reduction goals. New funding and new support are becoming available every day to power the changes farmers need to make on every Illinois acre.”
