EPA has launched a new web page celebrating farmers who work to protect clean water by properly managing nutrients on their farms. The farmers have been identified through partnership with the National Association of Conservation Districts for implementing best management practices that reduce nutrient pollution while improving or sustaining their profits, soil quality or yields. Protecting clean water is essential to sustaining agricultural in the United States, and nutrient pollution threatens our economy, public health and quality of life. These “farmer heroes” are stewards of their local water resources as well as providers of America’s food supply. Read the farmer heroes’ stories here.
