Our farmers have a great respect for the land and a strong commitment to protect it.
From no-till farming to crop rotation to responsible land use, our farmers understand the value of sustainable agriculture and work to safeguard:
- Water use and quality
- Air quality
- Soil loss
- Energy use
- Climate impact
We work with our farmers to continually improve environmental stewardship while protecting their right to farm.
A balance is sought between legitimate environmental concerns and the economic realities of farming. Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association supports programs that ensure environmental permanence with the need to maintain a long-term, dependable food supply and the necessity for long-term profitability in farming.
Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association challenges farmers to take part in the ongoing and vital environmental stewardship discussion — with neighbors, with consumers, with members of Congress. Talk to them about:
- The farming practices you do that supports environmental stewardship
- How you have seen farming practices change over the years as new technology becomes available that increases your ability to be environmentally sound
We believe that farmers must have a voice in this issue.
