Soybean Growers publish WRAPS handbook for farmers

The Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council has published a handbook for farmers about the Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy program. Water quality is a major concern in Minnesota. The state has 80 major watersheds and is developing WRAPS for all of those major watersheds with the goal of water quality standards that meet total maximum daily loads of pollutants in Minnesota waters.

Farmers have a big role to play in how the WRAPS process plays out, but the process can be overwhelming and at times intimidating. That’s why the Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council worked with Houston Engineering Inc. to develop a handbook to guide WRAPS participants through the process. "Everything you need to know in one convenient place. Now that’s using your bean." WRAPS Handbook.
