THE AMERICAN Soybean Association is seeking nominations for the 2004 Conservation Legacy Awards. The national Conservation Legacy Program recognizes outstanding environmental and conservation achievements of U.S. soybean farmers. Along with ASA, the program is co-sponsored by Monsanto and The Corn & Soybean Digest magazine, an Intertec/Primedia publication.

Any ASA member who actively farms, including an individual farmer or farm family, is eligible to receive the Conservation Legacy Award. One ASA member actively engaged in soybean production will be selected from each of the following four regions: Western, Southern, Midwestern and Northeastern. One national winner will be selected from the regional winners, based on the nomination form and on-farm visits to each regional winner's farm.

Producers interested in receiving the award must complete an application form. Application forms are being mailed to ASA members. Forms are also available by calling 800-688-7692 or on ASA's Web site, www.SoyGrowers.com.

All four regional winners and a spouse/guest will receive a trip to Commodity Classic, March 2-4, 2004, in Las Vegas, Nev.
