The 22nd edition of the Greenbook highlights Sustainable Agriculture Demonstration Grant projects of Minnesota farmers, ranchers and researchers. These grants support on-farm practices that promote environmental stewardship and conservation of resources as well as improve profitability and quality of life in rural areas.
To date, the annual Greenbook has showcased 281 projects of innovative and creative grant recipients. Many of these projects have contributed to important advances in Minnesota agriculture.
We are proud of the diversification of our farming community – from the small specialty crop farmers to the large commodity crop farmers – they all work to make Minnesota’s agricultural sector a success.
Greenbook 2011 contains articles on each project with personal observations and management tips from the participants as well as practical and technical information. The project results highlighted in this book are intended to be shared and these grantees are more than willing to talk with you about their experiences. Feel free to give them a call about their projects!
