Soil health and water quality is the subject of the most recent HAT Soil Health Podcast presented by the Indiana Conservation Cropping Systems Initiative. Mark and Phyllis Legan are past recipients of the River Friendly Farmer Award given annually to farmers who work to protect their rivers, lakes, and streams through every day conservation management practices. Mark explains how no-till farming impacts water quality.
He adds that his machinery costs have gone down since beginning this practice.
The Legans are joined by Indiana Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts Executive Director Joe Schmees on this month’s podcast. You can also hear from new Indiana State Conservationist Jerry Raynor. You can download the HAT Soil Health Podcast at hoosieragtoday.com, or wherever you download podcasts.
