In the Mississippi Delta there is no bigger force on the economy and the environment than agriculture, with its tens of millions of acres of farmland that both feeds a nation and impacts water quality. In Arkansas programs can help both if they arise from collaboration and provide benefits for farms and conservation, as discussed in this episode with Jason Milks, Delta Projects Manager for The Nature Conservancy of Arkansas. He talks about a variety of success stories including the Wetlands Reserve Program, White River Wildlife Refuge, and controlling runoff from unpaved roads.
