Water Testing Strips to be Mailed

Nutrient Manager Megan Dwyer introduced the second annual water testing strip program in honor of National FFA Week.

The program sends two water testing strips to every ICGA member and asks them to voluntarily sample water on their farm, whether from a creek, ditch or small stream, and anonymously report the results to www.ilcorn.org/watertesting. When farmers submit their results they will be asked to designate an Illinois FFA chapter to donate $5 on their behalf.

Last year the program raised $635 and aims to have an even higher response rate. Members should keep an eye out for the testing strips in the mail in the coming weeks.

Watch Megan Dwyer break down the purpose of this program even more in this one-minute video.
