2020 Clean Water in Iowa Starts Here - Winterset
The Clean Water in Iowa Starts Here tour visited Fred Martens’ farm in Madison County. The stop, hosted by Heartland Co-op, highlighted his CREP wetland and the no-till and nutrient management practices at work on the family’s farm.

This event is the first opportunity for the Iowa agriculture community to meet Heartland Co-op’s new conservation agronomists. Michael Fritch and Ruth McCabe recently joined the Heartland Co-op team to help their member-owners overcome the hurdles inherent to adopting conservation practices and improving soil health.
