Farmers share impact of conservation with SWCDs

September 24, 2019by ncdea

MINNESOTA – Staff and elected supervisors from Area VII Southeastern Minnesota Soil and Water Conservation districts gathered on the Mike and Kay Peterson Farm in Northfield earlier this month to learn about the impact of conservation programs from local farmers.

Eleven districts, including the Rice, Goodhue and Steele County Soil & Water Conservation districts, belong to the southeast Area VII and serve urban and rural landowners by delivering conservation programs and providing technical, financial and educational resources.

During the Sept. 17 annual Area VII meeting, farmer Mike Peterson shared his journey of implementing conservation practices on his farm, which over the past thirty-five years has included the installation of grassed waterways, sediment basins, strip tillage, and most recently cover crops.
