ThreeWhy is it important?

WaterFrom the Corn Belt to the bays of the East Coast to the salmon rivers of the Pacific Northwest, concerns about the quality and quantity of our water is an increasing concern. In addition to being one of our most treasured resources, water is the lifeblood of the farm.  Farmers know that protecting the quality of water is important not only from a conservationist and ethical standpoint, but also as a matter of good business.

Water Quality Trading is one of many ways that farmers can contribute to a healthier environment. Visit our Demonstration Projects page to learn more about our on-the-ground water quality projects.
