Hitting the “Easy Button” on Conservation Practices
Preventing nutrient loss and improving water quality go hand-in-glove. But actually implementing conservation practices like tile drainage treatment systems or bioreactors? Now that can be tough.
Listen as John Swanson, Water Resources Supervisor in Polk County, IA, describes how his team has used a “batch-and-build” method of getting conservation practices from concept to completion. With this method, John and his team have increased adoption of saturated buffers and bioreactors by 600%. Find out how you, too, can “hit the easy button” on conservation practices.
