A no-till field in Pennsylvania.We invite farmers in 14 Pennsylvania counties to participate in a very important survey. Pennsylvania agriculture has done much to improve water quality in our local rivers and streams and the Chesapeake Bay. Yet that positive story is often not told. Now is the time for farmers to tell that story! 

Farmers in Bedford, Centre, Columbia, Cumberland, Dauphin, Huntingdon, Juniata, Lebanon, Lycoming, Mifflin, Northumberland, Perry, Snyder, and Tioga Counties are invited to participate in a survey to inventory conservation practices on their farms.  

Completing this survey will help Pennsylvania agriculture get the credit it deserves for improving water quality. Please note that names and locational information will be kept completely confidential.
