For the fourth year in a row, data analysis shows that farmers who are Ag Water Quality Certified are more profitable than farmers who are not certified. This data comes from the farm financials of farmers enrolled in Farm Business Management. Details on the economic studies can be found at

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