Area farmers needed for research discussion on conservation practices

Thurs., September 26
Rock Island County Extension Office, Milan, IL

University of Illinois Extension is seeking 6 to 10 farmers to participate in a discussion with Illinois and Purdue University researchers about agricultural conservation practices and programs. They would like to talk to farmers who have not yet implemented conservation practices or who use very limited conservation methods, in order better understand the barriers they face. They hope to gain insight from the feedback that will help make future conservation practices easier or more appealing for Illinois farmers to adopt.

The group discussion will be followed by a lunch hosted by the University of Illinois. As a token of thanks for helping in their study, the research team from U of I will provide each participant with $49.99.
