Water Quality Improvement Summary:

Over the years, Matt has implemented many sustainable practices to preserve soil nutrients and improve water quality on his farm in Darke County. In the mid-1990s, he began no-till farming. Matt recognizes that not disturbing the soil helps to retain moisture and nutrients in the soil and protects water quality. More recently, Matt has also employed field filter border strips, cover crops and forest management plans. Matt chooses to be a good steward to protect the next generation.
