Clean water is undoubtedly one of the most valuable natural resources required for productive and sustainable farming. Good management of water resources is also essential to support soil health and farm wildlife, which is why farmers who take care of their farm’s water can deliver a host of benefits by ensuring nutrients and pesticides stay out of watercourses.
By following good farm practices which ensure nutrients and pesticides are used in the right place, in the right amount and at the right time, you can save yourself the cost of excess use while saving watercourses from pollution. It’s a win-win approach.
