Agriculture Committed to Environmental Stewardship
The Minnesota Agricultural Water Resource Center is a non-profit research and education organization dedicated to assisting Minnesota farmers in addressing water quality concerns.
Our members and supporters include agricultural organizations representing more than 50,000 farmers and those who advise them. Our network of Agricultural Watershed Councils allows farmers to lead discussions about water quality issues and solutions within their communities. The MAWRC is also the lead partner in Discovery Farms Minnesota, a farmer-led program combining water quality information and farming system information to help characterize the relationship between agricultural management and water quality.
These programs are led by Minnesota farmers and largely funded by Minnesota farmers and allied groups—Minnesota Agriculture Committed to Environmental Stewardship.
