Using nature's tools to clean water
Agriculture is part of the fabric of Minnesota. In 2016, it generated $17.9 billion in farm sales, contributing significantly to our economy and communities around Minnesota. Our lakes and waters are also part of Minnesota’s identity and are vital to farmers, our communities, and our environment. We know it’s in our best interests to keep both healthy and strong. But how do we do that?
The Gorans Discovery Farm project takes a close look at where excess nutrients in our waterways are coming from and is experimenting with innovative ways to tackle the issue.
