Dr. Howard Brown firmly believes it will be the developing minds in local high schools and community colleges that will shape the future of production agriculture and environmental stewardship. Dr. Brown and Illini FS strives to educate students about wise nutrient use and to expose them to possible careers in production agriculture. "Farm profitability and environmental stewardship must go hand-in-hand for improvements in nutrient stewardship to be sustainable. We need production agronomists that are environmentalists. It will not be a destination, but a journey led by our developing young leaders of tomorrow." We at Illini FS want to do our part to make it happen."
