ST. LOUIS, Mo. — The American Soybean Association seeks applicants for its Conservation Legacy Award.

The awards recognize farm management practices of U.S. soybean farmers that are both environmentally friendly and profitable. Practices could include reduced tillage, cover crops, steps to improve energy efficiency or water quality and others.

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

Award winners are selected from each of the four regions — Midwest, Upper Midwest, Northeast and South. One farmer from each region will win an expense paid trip for two to Commodity Classic — scheduled for March 4-6, 2021 in San Antonio, Texas — and one will be named the National Conservation Legacy Award recipient.
