PCM and Clay Bess Honored for Exceptional Conservation Leadership
IL Corn is proud to announce Clay Bess has been recognized as part of Field to Market’s 2020 Trusted Adviser Spotlight Series! Through his role with Precision Conservation Management, Clay Bess works to support Illinois farmers in implementing data driven conservation practices and scaling their sustainable outcomes. IL Corn partners with advisers like Clay to improve environmental outcomes and advance sustainable solutions for farmers throughout our value chain. Field to Market recognized Clay on June 24 during its annual Plenary and General Assembly Meeting, recognizing his outstanding leadership in implementing innovative approaches to scale conservation agriculture.
What made this recognition notable is that Bess was nominated by a Precision Conservation Management partner, PepsiCo! This nomination highlights the value of the conservation work we’re doing, not only to farmers, but to the entire food supply chain.
Congratulations to Clay for his accomplishments in delivering sustainable outcomes for U.S. commodity agriculture.
