Making Every Drop Count: NCGA Tools for Water Quality

Making Every Drop Count: NCGA Tools for Water Quality
To help corn farmers understand water issues and ways to enhance water quality on their farms, the National Corn Growers Association has added a video and an interactive educational module to its online learning tools concerning water quality management.   


"NCGA is dedicated to continuous improvement, education and supporting water conservation and input management," said Dean Taylor, chair of the Production and Stewardship Action Team. "Our goal in producing these tools is to communicate the actual production related practices farmers are successfully implementing related to water quality."


The video, titled "Driving Change," showcases NCGA members describing the practices they are implementing to enhance water quality on their farms and in their area. The 30-minute NCGA Water Issues Learning Module was developed to help farmers better understand water quality issues and best practices.


Both tools reveal the major benefits in using best management practices, and stress the importance of becoming knowledgeable about issues related to water quality and use at local, state and regional levels. They also help farmers learn regulatory requirements and understand key elements of the Clean Water Act.
