Many Colorado farmers are implementing some of the latest-and-greatest production methods, aimed at improving efficiency on their farms, protecting our natural resources, and enhancing air and water quality. And now we want to honor the producers taking these efforts to new heights.   

Colorado Corn is seeking applications for its first ever Colorado Farm Stewardship Award. The winner will be selected by Colorado Corn board members, as well as experts in ag, conservation and sustainability. Applicants must be Colorado Corn Growers Association members in good standing, implement conservation tillage methods, and demonstrate practices related to soil, water or air stewardship

The announcement of the winner will be made during the Colorado Corn Annual Banquet in Yuma on Dec. 7. In addition to the awards banquet recognition, the winner will be recognized in Colorado Corn communications efforts, and also receive our nomination for the National Corn Growers Association Good Steward Recognition -- an honor that includes a $10,000 cash award for the winner, among other prizes. 

Applications are due Nov. 18. For more information or to find an application, click here. You can also contact Melissa Ralston at, Eric Brown at, or call our office at (970) 351-8201.
