Iowa Nutrient Research & Education Council Hires Regional Liaisons
Ag retailers will be seeing some new faces in the coming months. INREC is contracting with three individuals to serve as a resource for the Progress Measurement pilot project. The liaisons will be making contacts with CEOs, GMs, and others to help facilitate data acquisition needed to provide an accurate view of the efforts of Iowa farmers and retailers to implement conservation practices and tell the story of agricultural stewardship.
"Having the liaisons on board greatly improves the reach and resources available as we launch phase 2 of the pilot program," said Environmental Technology Director Shawn Richmond. "We are excited to have such capable and knowledgeable individuals serving in this capacity."
The three liaisons are:
Ingels lives in Randalia and will serve the northeast portion of the state. He most recently worked as a water quality specialist for Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and is a nutrient management consultant.
Spirit Lake, IA
Davis lives in Spirit Lake and will serve the Northwest portion of Iowa. He is a retired Farm Bureau regional manager and has more than 30 years of experience working with farmers.
Webster lives in Treynor and will serve the southern counties in Iowa. Roger is an instructor at Iowa Western Community College, is the General Manager at Treynor Ag Supply, and is a past Chair of AAI Services.
