Tracking Conservation Success

Overview

The Minnesota Corn Growers Association needed an accurate solution for tracking best management practices (BMPs). HEI developed an online BMP tracking database and web mapping application to meet the specific needs of Minnesota’s agricultural community.

Background

The Minnesota Corn Growers Association needed an accurate solution for tracking best management practices (BMPs). Studies often point to agriculture as a main source of pollutant loading to Minnesota waters and overlook producers’ ongoing efforts to support conservation practices. This project was designed to address these issues.

The Project

HEI developed an online BMP tracking database and web mapping application to meet the specific needs of Minnesota’s agricultural community.

The tool supports the needs of ongoing initiatives while serving Minnesota’s larger agricultural community to tell their story of conservation successes. The system allows clients to easily enter newly-adopted conservation practices and BMPs into a tracking system, using a username-protected online system.

  • Worked using an iterative project management approach to ensure on-time delivery and maximum functionality for the budget scope.
  • Extensive experience building web-based databases helped to gain client’s confidence and engage in a long-term working relationship.
  • Easy entry of newly-adopted conservation practices and BMPs into the tracking system, through the use of a username-protected online system.
  • The ability to publicize the ongoing stewardship of Minnesota’s agricultural producers to key stakeholders, including other producers, the regulatory community, and the general public.
