The National Corn Growers Association released a new learning tool on its Web site that will help growers and others better understand how the Clean Water Act impacts farming. Featuring various modules, the online resource provides an interactive and informative educational session and training materials. Currently, the resource addresses issues covered under the CWA such as hypoxia, the shrinking water supply and future water demand.
The modules familiarize growers with solid scientific data with which they can confront common misconceptions that can harm farming operations and damage grower credibility as good stewards of the environment. Additionally, the learning center provides information on the best management practices that growers institute everyday in their own operations to improve personal water use.
