Reserve the Rainfall Simulator
ISAP’s Rainfall Simulator is the perfect tool to bring to your next field day, county fair, farmers market, festival, or other community event! The Rainfall Simulator is a portable, educational tool that demonstrates the differences in water retention and soil erosion between fields that are heavily tilled versus fields with a living cover.

To request the Rainfall Simulator for your next event, submit a request online and an ISAP staff member will reach out to coordinate details. The Rainfall Simulator is available now, so reserve today!

Alphabet Soup: April 26
Join Sand County Foundation and the Illinois Sustainable Ag Partnership on April 26th from 12-1pm CT for an interactive and strategy-building discussion based on Sand County Foundation's recent report, "Making Conservation Conventional: Perspectives from a behavioral design process with farmers in the midwestern United States."

In ISAP's first convening of Alphabet Soup in 2022, you will have the opportunity to participate in an interactive, task-oriented workshop to deepen your understanding of the issues at play, find new strategies to incorporate into your work, and identify new approaches for your work with farmers. We highly recommend that attendees read the report before attending the workshop in order to allow for more in-depth discussion. 
Register for the April 26th Alphabet Soup
Service Provider Directory

ISAP is developing a public directory of ag service providers who assist farmers with cover crops, tillage, and nutrient management practices. The goal of this directory is to help connect farmers with agriculture retailers and crop consultants who can provide information, supplies, or services.
