ICGA Precision Conservation Management & PepsiCo FritoLay Project

The purpose of the Precision Conservation Management (PCM) program is 3-fold: 1) allow Illinois commodity crop farmers to voluntarily address regulatory issues and water quality concerns; 2) assist PCM partners wishing to demonstrate their efforts to support farmers (through PCM) and source sustainably-produced crop products; and 3) provide financial analysis of agronomic practices to help farmers make sound business decisions regarding implementation of conservation practices.  PCM’s primary resource concerns are water quality, soil health, and greenhouse gases and we focus our efforts and resources toward assisting farmers with implementation of in-field management practices that most effectively address those concerns, namely nutrient management, reduced tillage and cover crops.
