Applications are now being accepted through Sept. 2, 2016, for the 2017 Conservation Legacy Awards, which program showcases farm management practices of U.S. soybean producers that are both environmentally friendly and profitable. Three regional winners and one national winner will be selected. The three award winners will receive an expense paid trip for two to the 2017 Commodity Classic in San Antonio.
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, farmstead protection and conservation and environmental management. Winners will be selected from these three regions – the Midwest, the Northeast and the South. One of these award recipients will be named the national winner during the American Soybean Association (ASA) Awards Banquet at Commodity Classic.
