ST. LOUIS, Mo. — The American Soybean Association seeks to recognize soybean farmers who practice conservation efforts in their farming operation.

All U.S. soybean farmers are eligible to enter to win. Entries are judged on soil management, water management, input management, conservation, environmental management and sustainability.

The awards recognize farm management practices that are both environmentally friendly and profitable.

One farmer from each region will be recognized at the 2020 Commodity Classic in San Antonio, Texas, and one of these farmers will be named the National Conservation Legacy Award recipient.

Award winners receive an expense paid trip for two to Commodity Classic Feb. 27-29, 2020 in San Antonio, Texas; a feature story and video featuring the award winner’s farm and conservation practices; and the potential opportunity for the national winner to join other farmer-leaders on an international trip to visit U.S. soy customers overseas.

For information on how to submit an application, see the “About” section under “Awards” at Applications are due Friday.
