Welcome to The WaterWay Network, a peer-to-peer forum for Wisconsin and Minnesota farmers and crop consultants to share information and collaborate on topics related to water quality and soil conservation. 
With the WaterWay Network, farmers can interact with each other to contribute tips, share experiences and use information provided by others to continue managing their operations efficiently and sustainably. Discussion topics are prompted by experts, starting the conversation and giving users access to valuable information from other farmers, consultants, and Discovery Farms.
Farmers, crop consultants, and handpicked experts are allowed access to discussions once registered. Register and check out the discussion forum to get involved in the conversation!
