For the fourth year in a row, data analysis shows that farmers who are Minnesota Ag Water Quality Certified are more profitable than farmers who are not. This data comes from the financials of farmers enrolled in Farm Business Management.

This data indicates a positive return on investment for the whole farm conservation management producers implement to become Minnesota Ag Water Quality Certified.

Lunch included! Angie Walter will lead a presentation on the Minnesota Ag Water Quality Certification Program at each event. Click here to download a flyer.

Free to attend. Advance registration requested for catering count. Info:
