50 Ways Farmers Can Protect Their Groundwater

Here's what others have to say about the book:

"Many of the practices described in 50 Ways can boost profits by helping farmers cut back on chemical inputs . . . .   Sprinkled in among the how-to sections are profiles of farmers and their down-to-earth experiences integrating the practices into their farm management schemes."

-- Environmental Protection Agency's News-Notes November-December 1993.

50 Ways. . ."offers a thorough, yet practical checklist of voluntary practices designed to reduce the risk of groundwater contamination without cutting into yields or profitability."  The recommendations in the book "not only save the environment but could possibly put dollars in your pocket."  Prairie Farm editors "found it both easy to read and well-targeted . . . .  The illustrations alone are worth the price of the book."

-- Prairie Farmer, August 1993.
