The Colorado Corn Administrative Committee and Colorado Corn Growers Association want to honor local producers that are improving efficiency on their farms, protecting the state’s natural resources and enhancing air and water quality.
That’s why the two organizations are seeing applicants who are implementing these production methods for the Colorado Farm Stewardship Award, according to a news release sent Friday from Colorado Corn. Applicants must be CCGA members in good standing, implement conservation tillage methods and demonstrate practices related to soil, water or air stewardship. Applications are due Nov. 17.
The winner will be announced during the Colorado Corn Annual Banquet on Dec. 6 in Burlington. The winner will also receive the organizations’ nominations for the National Corn Growers Association Good Steward Recognition, which is a national honor that includes a $10,000 cash award among other prizes, according to the news release.
The award recipient will be selected by CCAC and CCGA board members, as well as other experts in agriculture, conservation and sustainability.
