Conservation practiced for future generations

By Jennifer Bremer

Caring for the land through the use of ridge tillage and watershed programs as well as other conservation programs has helped Humboldt County, Iowa farmer Jay Lynch make his farm more sustainable for future generations.

Lynch farms about 600 acres in north central Iowa near Humboldt and believes in preserving the land through the use of practices such as ridge tillage.

"My dad has been using ridge tillage successfully for many years, so I have continued the practice," he said.
