CHARITON, IA — U.S. Representative Zach Nunn visited Iowa State University’s McNay Research Farm last Friday to learn more the innovations they’ve discovered on the nearly 2,000 acre farm. In addition, Nunn discussed his work on bipartisan Conservation Innovation Act and the Streamlining Conservation Practice Standards Act.

“There is no better steward of the land than our farmers,” said Rep. Nunn. “Many of the conservation innovations Iowa State is researching could be approved by the USDA in the coming years. If my two bipartisan bills are passed, it will streamline the ability for stakeholder input and finally modernize the USDA to make sure producers have what they need to succeed.”

During the visit Nunn was able to learn more about the cattle and row crop research that has been conducted on the farm and new, innovative conservation practices which may be implemented by producers in the future.

Rep. Nunn’s bills he discussed create much needed reforms for farmers and stakeholders to navigate the red tape and provide common-sense input into their operation’s conservation practices. Today’s current practices for input ultimately delay implementation and this process lacks the ability to implement new, cutting-edge research on farms. Rep Nunn’s bills will provide necessary relief so farmers and producers have a say in their respective operations.
