While you're waiting to get into the field this year, consider taking some time to nominate a farmer for the Iowa Farm Environmental Leader Award. This is a great way to recognize farmers across Iowa that work hard every day to protect the environment through their soil and water conservation efforts. The award is a joint effort of the Governor, Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, and Iowa Department of Natural Resources and winners will be recognized at the Iowa State Fair. 

Nominations are due by May 2, 2022. Find the nomination form and more information here: https://iowaagriculture.gov/farm-environmental-leader-awards
