Water Quality

Strip-tillage with a cearal rye cover crop between the strips

Protecting our water is a job everyone involved in agriculture takes very seriously.  Protecting our rivers and streams from sedimentation and the run-off of chemicals and fertilizers, as well as the protection Lake Erie by way of both the Maumee and Sandusky rivers is an issue that has been gaining political momentum, and is an emphasis of farm managers throughout Northwest Ohio.  At W&A Crop Solutions, we also see this as an important challenge for Agriculture to do its part, and are working on various initiatives including strip-tillage with variable rate fertilizer application and cover cropping to measure the value in crop production and environmental benefits.
