Hear From the Conservation Experts

Precision Conservation Management (PCM) released their 2021 data and recommendations last month, but there's still time to better understand what the data is telling us and change your management practices before this fall!


If you need some help interpretting the data and recommendations or simply want a deeper dive, checkout this recorded webinar featuring Dr. Gary Schnitkey, Dr. Laura Gentry and Dr. Sarah Sellers.  They review 2020 PCM data, in combination with the data from 2016 -2019, and help farmers understand how they can maximize conservation practices AND economic returns. 


For the first year ever, the data includes environmental measures, meant to help farmers determine the best practices to try when financial implications are very similar for one or more practices. 


PCM is lead by the Illinois Corn Growers Association and the Illinois Soybean Associations, along with more than 30 other partners like PepsiCo, ADM, and Cargill. The program also began with the receipt of a Regional Conservation Partnership Program from the USDA in 2015.  This grant has been renewed and will allow the PCM program to grow and continue.
