Preparing for revised nutrient management standard
"Illinois farmers have made tremendous improvements in recent years thanks to reduced tillage practices, increased use of buffer strips and other conservation efforts," says Moore. "Continued progress, with guidance from local and national experts, is key to ensuring our continued success."
The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) has identified six priority watersheds for nutrient reductions including Lake Bloomington, Lake Vermilion, Lake Decatur, Vermilion River (Illinois Basin), Salt Fork Vermilion River (Wabash Basin) and Mauvaise Terre Creek, although all growers throughout the state are encouraged to adopt practices that make sense on their farms. A map of the priority watersheds can be accessed at http://www.ifca.com/media/files/iepa_priority_watersheds_for_nutrient_reduction.pdf.
