Keep our top soil rich and productive for 100 years
Protecting Iowa's Water Resources: My goal is keeping our top soil rich and productive 100 years from now and keeping it here in Iowa. Let's drive down our water bills by cleaning up impaired waterways and reducing and managing the nitrates before they
