Myth: “Tile and Conservation Don’t Mix” | Drainage Opportunities & Challenges

Build resiliency on your farm with conservation practices. “Tile and Conservation Don’t Mix” is a misconception that may be limiting farmers’ interest in adopting conservation practices. Tile systems can be designed to mitigate the risk of nutrient loss often associated with drainage, while also providing a foundation for soil health systems to thrive. Hear a farmer’s perspective on how conservation drainage practices have impacted his operation.

The 2022 Risk Management Conference

The Illinois Sustainable Ag Partnership (ISAP) is hosting a free 3-part webinar series debunking popular myths that keep some farmers from adopting soil health and conservation drainage practices. The series will look beyond the environmental benefits of conservation practices to highlight the production and economic benefits producers can gain by transitioning to a soil health system. 

The series aims to increase the knowledge of farmers, landowners, and advisers, bringing the agriculture industry together to highlight how conservation practices go beyond the environmental benefits and build resiliency for Illinois farms. 

This three-week series will be June 13, 21, and 27 from 1-2:30pm CT. Continuing education credits, CEUs, will be offered.
