IFB Hosts Virtual Field Days
Environmental action is an organizational priority for Illinois Farm Bureau.
Since 2015, IFB has committed over $1.5 million to support implementation of the Illinois Nutrient Loss
Reduction Strategy (NLRS). The IFB Nutrient Stewardship Grant Program is an example of how IFB and
county Farm Bureaus (CFBs) partner to create lasting impacts in nutrient stewardship, funding projects that take innovative approaches to improving soil health and water quality. Due to COVID-19, in-person Nutrient Stewardship Field Days were not
possible. Instead, IFB worked to produce Virtual Field Days to
share the work of counties and their partners involved in the
IFB Nutrient Stewardship Grant program. Each Virtual Field
Day video features a brief summary of the effort, video links to
speaker presentationsand a booklet of preliminary results.
