      Best Management Practices (BMPs) are designed to save farmers money while maintaining optimal yields. But with real income on the line, farmers can be reluctant to try new practices. Income guarantees help ease the transition. The BMP CHALLENGE combines guarantees, in-field comparison and technical assistance to address risk and increase adoption of nutrient and tillage management practices. This video, presented by American Farmland Trust and Agflex Inc., provides information for crop advisors to prepare for the 2012 crop season demonstrations. Our hope is to provide key details to prospective advisors in a convenient and efficient format and, subsequently boost enrollment.

                The next episode of the ENCAP Erosion Control Mintue will examine an alternate sediment control practice to traditional silt fence. Compost best management practices have been used extensively throughout the Midwest as both erosion and sediment control measures. In this episode of the Erosion Control Minute we will examine the use of compost filter logs for sediment control. Winter can be a difficult time for erosion and sediment control in the Midwest. Frozen ground conditions coupled with snow melt and rainfall can wreak havoc on erosion and sediment control measures. Additionally, frozen ground conditions make installation of many BMPs impractical or impossible. Compost logs can be a viable alternative and one of the few BMPs that can be applied during this difficult time of year. Get the detail on this episode of the ENCAP Erosion Control Minute.

                    The next episode of the ENCAP Erosion Control Minute will break down the final rule on the Effluent Limitiation Guidelines for the NPDES construction general permit by the USEPA. While the state of Illinois is still three years away from the expiration of the statewide NPDES permit, the USEPA Effluent Limitation Guidelines will serve to dramatically change the way we plan, design, and construct erosion and sediment control practices on construction sites. With such important regulatory steps being made, the precedents that are set in this rule will likely be the subject of many developments within the industry in the years to come.
