CCSI Farmer Profile: Jamie Scott

jamieJamie Scott, Kosciusko County, has been a supervisor for the Kosciusko County SWCD for seven years and chairman for the last three. He currently serves the Indiana Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (IASWCD) as secretary. Scott is part of a family farm operation consisting of about 2,000 acres. The family has implemented many conservation practices and earned recognition as the IASWCD Conservation Farmer of the Year and both regional and national Conservationist of the Year awards from the American Soybean Association. The operation was an early adopter of conservation tillage. Now all tillable acres are no-tilled or strip tilled. A spring workshop and field demonstration on cover crops has been held for the last three years. They have coordinated cover crop aerial seedings in an eight-county area for the last three years resulting in 16,000 planted acres.
