Because we always are looking for new ways to improve the way farmers use nutrients on their farms, ISG helped develop the NLRS and supports the voluntary initiative. Additionally, ISG is a member of the Ag Water Quality Partnership Forum, as well as various other groups who also are committed to helping farmers and the industry meet these goals.
More information on the Illinois NLRS, including updates from the committees responsible for its implementation, is available on the Illinois EPA website.
NLRS Update July 21, 2015
The final draft of the Illinois Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy (NLRS) was released today. It shows Illinois’ commitment to improving our water quality and the quality of water leaving the state.
ISG views the Illinois NLRS as an opportunity to work together to address how nutrients are managed in our state. Beyond improving water quality in Illinois, it will help us improve our farms and illustrate our commitment to sustainable farming practices throughout the soybean supply chain.
