The Business Case for Conservation: A Summary of Farm Financial and Environmental Data from Precision Conservation Management
June 23, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT
In this 1-hour webinar, the PCM and University of IL Agricultural Economics Team will summarize 6-years of data from the Precision Conservation Management program (PCM). PCM is a farmer service program led by IL Corn Growers Association and IL Soybean Association. PCM’s objective is to work 1-on-1 with farmers across Illinois as they make financially-based conservation decisions on their farms. PCM creates reports for each cooperating farmer that allows them to compare their own farm management practices with the average of other local farmers using the same practices as well as more conservation-focused practices. Please join us to learn more about how conservation practices like reduced- and no-till, cover crops, and nitrogen management impact corn and soybean production, profitability, and environmental outcome.
