Many Colorado farmers are implementing some of the latest-and-greatest production methods, aimed at improving efficiency on their farms, protecting natural resources, and enhancing air and water quality. Now we want to honor the producers taking these efforts to new heights.
Colorado Corn is seeking applications for its new Colorado Farm Stewardship Award. The winner will be selected by Colorado Corn board members, and also 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 December 7. The winner will also be recognized in Colorado Corn's communications efforts, and also receive our nomination for the National Corn Growers Association Good Steward Recognition -- a national honor that includes a $10,000 cash award for the winner, among other prizes.
Applications are due November 18. For more information or to find an application, click here. You can also contact Melissa Walter at firstname.lastname@example.org, Eric Brown at email@example.com, or call our office at (970) 351-8201.
