Every Acre Matters!

Dec 12, 2022

Every acre matters at IAS. From north to south, east to west, landowners and growers across the Cedar River Watershed can make a difference in their communities. And when they come together with agri-businesses and cities, that impact can be significant.

The Cedar River Source Water Partnership (CRSWP) is designed to do just that. The goal is to help improve drinking water quality, reduce flood risk downstream and help improve wildlife habitat through practices that growers can implement in their operations.

The USDA-NRCS awarded just over$7 million to CRSWP to support the project through the USDA-NRCS’s Regional Conservation Partnership Program.

$4.9 million of the USDA funding will go straight to growers to help them pay for conservation practices. The remaining$2.1 million will go to education and outreach, as well as help growers to make smart decisions about what will work best on their land.

​Reach out to your local agronomist or contact our Precision Ag Manager, Sam Farrington at 641-858-7172 for more information!
