During this ILSoyAdvisor Webinar, Laura Gentry, Ph.D., reviewed how using Precision Conservation Management (PCM) benefits farmers both financially and environmentally, including results using cover crops, tillage and conservation outcomes. The most recent aggregated data from 2015 to 2021 shares results from farmers who have used these practices. She also provided an objective analysis of how conservation practices impact farmers in the program and how farmers can make better conservation practices on the farm.
