AdvocateTribune: New online database from the University of Minnesota Extension helps local farmers share sustainable practices

AdvocateTribune: New online database from the University of Minnesota Extension helps local farmers share sustainable practices. “You’re a Minnesota farmer who cares about conservation, but the risks of veering from conventional farming feel great. How would new practices affect the bottom line? Have they worked on other similar farms? And besides what any research says, what do actual farmers think? A new online database will connect farmers with other farmers to share their experiences with sustainable farming methods. Farmers will be able to pull up the tool on their phone or desktop computer, and find nearby peers willing to share their experiences with specific practices.”
