The project demonstrated to farmers throughout the county, on a voluntary basis, the effects and economics of conservation tillage. An intense educational program was provided, no-till equipment made available and technical assistance was also provided to the farmer as incentives to test conservation tillage on their lands. The response to the adoption of conservation practices was outstanding. A second part of the demonstration was the evaluation of rural sewer systems. The Allen County General Health District worked with the residential home owners to correct the deficient septic systems. Water quality monitoring, before and after the renovation process, was conducted of the ditch that the sewage systems drained into. A description of the work is included.
