Illinois Nutrient Research Education Council Considering Projects

The Illinois Nutrient Research Education Council continues to do work. It’s project time and there are a number of efforts throughout the state under consideration says N-REC Executive Director Julie Armstrong.



NREC has been in business since 2012 and was created by state statute. Its work is funded by a 75-cent per ton assessment on bulk fertilizer sold in Illinois. Decisions on 2020 projects will be made in August.


New Windsor area farmer Jeff Kirwan serves as Chairman of the N-REC Council.
