Now is the time to be sustainable

These days, more than ever, farmers are being held accountable, and even scrutinized, for their sustainable and conservation efforts. Strip-till, cover crops, water quality, drainage management, soil health and more are at the forefront of the forward-thinking farmers across the U.S.

And more and more farmers are taking these practices to their own farms. They're switching to strip-till, then to no-till. They're concerned about water quality just as much as the people who live in town, if not more. Farmers know that to continue farming, they'll have to take a lot more into consideration.

We put together a collection of our best stories covering these sustainable topics.

Give these and other stories a read over at our Sustainability page and share with us how you're farming sustainably. Tell us what sustainability means to you. We'd love to hear from you! Email me ( and share your thoughts.
