NAT'L CORN GROWERS ASSN REPORTS ON ITS #CORNCOMMITMENT THIS EARTH DAY
Source: National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) news release

Leaving the world in better shape than we found it . . . this is a tenet of policy written and upheld by our U.S. corn farmers. So, this Earth Day, let's each make a commitment to amplify our impact on this front.

Let's take time to share our conservation efforts!

Let's illuminate how little changes can make BIG differences!

Let's inspire others to begin writing their own sustainability stories!

Here are some quick and impactful ideas to get started:

*Review best management practices for your crop protection tools-like neonics-with Growing Matter's BeSure! initiative.

*Consider planting a pollinator habitat! Check out The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund's Seed A Legacy program.

*Fill your tank with clean-burning ethanol blends. Visit Gas Buddy to find the nearest station carrying E15 and E85.

*Maximize nutrient applications with the 4Rs (right source, right rate, right time and right place). 4 Nutrient Stewardship will get you pointed in the "right" direction!
