Deadline Extended: ASA is now accepting applications for the Conservation Legacy Awards

ASA is still accepting applications for the Conservation Legacy Awards. The deadline has been extended to Sept. 14.

Share the story of how conservation is part of your farm operation and you could be recognized with a Conservation Legacy Award. The awards recognize farm management practices of U.S. soybean farmers that are both environmentally friendly and profitable.

The ASA announced the deadline for applications has been extended to Sept. 14. 

Conservation practices

Are you using a reduced tillage practice on your farm? Do you grow cover crops? Have you taken steps to improve energy efficiency or water quality? These are just a few conservation practices used on some farms today that can help produce sustainable U.S. soybeans. Different regions of the country have their own unique challenges and ways to approach conservation and sustainability. We want to hear your farm’s conservation story!

Eligibility

All U.S. soybean farmers are eligible to enter to win a Conservation Legacy Award. Entries are judged on soil management, water management, input management, conservation, environmental management and sustainability.

A new region has been added to this year’s program in order to recognize the conservation accomplishments of more U.S. soybean farmers. The four regions are now the Midwest, Upper Midwest, the Northeast and the South. One farmer from each of these regions will be recognized at the 2019 Commodity Classic in Orlando, Florida, and one of these farmers will be named the National Conservation Legacy Award recipient.

Check out the 2018 regional winners here: South region winner: History in Henry County; Midwest regional winner: The Livestock Component;  and the Northeast region winner: Life in the fishbowl: Farming and protecting Chesapeake Bay
