Skaurud Grain Farms takes pride in growing pure, quality crops. At the same time, we strongly believe in being intentional about preserving our environment and protecting precious land and surrounding environment and habitats.
Conservation practices are critical to our protection efforts. We use cover crop on sugar beets to protect from wind erosion. We also use control dikes to hold back water and release it slowly, preventing water erosion of the soil.
Pollinators are planted for wildlife and natural habitat. We have recently been accepted and are implementing conservation practices from Natural Resources Conservation Service’s (NRCS) Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP).
With a keen awareness of our practices, we believe we can continue to make Norman County one of Minnesota’s most beautiful canvasses for wildlife, nature, and beyond.
