Posted:
DES MOINES, Iowa (KTIV) -

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad is offering the nation's first, voluntary nutrient reduction strategy plan.  Branstad's proposal calls for $2.4-million in fiscal year 2014 and $4.4-million in fiscal year 2015 for the Agriculture Water Quality Initiative. The money will be used for marketing, outreach, and a water quality initiative cost share program that will be matched by farmers or land owners to start targeted conservation practices ranging from conservation tillage to bio-reactors to cover crops.
