opportunities
Opportunities?
  • Land grant research outputs are “best practice” standards – Why aren’t we educating consumers/taxpayers about this benefit?
  • Third-party BMP auditors as eyes and ears for government incentive programs? Don’t make me do the same paperwork twice!!!!!!!!!!
  • Third-party audit costs – some states cost-share organic, why not IPM, sustainable?
  • Cost-share for improvements mandated by third-party audit programs?
  • Let’s take advantage of this “private” sector infrastructure!
don t get left behind
Don’t get left behind!

When I grow up, I’m going to be an ECO BUYER!
