SOIL, WATER PROTECTION SHOULD BE REWARDED

In an opinion for the Herald & Review, Illinois farmer and TV reporter Dave Brown said it’s time to reward farmers who are protecting Illinois’ soil and water. Referencing a program in Iowa which discounts crop insurance for every acre of cover crops planted, Brown said Illinois should copy the program. “To keep not just my farm but the whole community prospering for many more generations, we need to stop washing that soil downstream and start caring for it like it’s more than just dirt.”
