FREE WATER TESTING PROGRAM

The Illinois Corn Growers Association and Illinois Corn Marketing Board are partnership with the Illinois Council on Best Management Practices and individual Soil and Water Conservation Districts to offer free, confidential water testing this year. There are 13 locations statewide offering the testing in priority watersheds. The free, confidential water testing offers nearly immediate results on the nitrate concentration of the water sample you provide from your farm’s tile, creek or pond. If you provide a flow calculation, that information can be provided to you in a per acre loss. Find out more at www.ilcorn.org/nutrientstrategy or www.illinoiscbmp.org.
