Washington County Conservation Leader Recognized with Good Farm Neighbor Award
Rob Stout has dedicated his farming career to putting conservation strategies into practice. Since 1983 he has utilized no-till on his acres, and has implemented several land management practices including cover crops, buffer strips, grassed waterways and even a woodchip bioreactor.
“I feel responsible to leave the farm in a better place than I got it , and that includes the land and the soil, but it also includes the water that leaves the land,” said Stout. “Water quality is important to me, and we all have to do our part to keep the nutrients here on the land where they belong.”
