The Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC) honors America's agricultural producers who efficiently manage their nutrients as part of a comprehensive conservation system.

In the Mississippi River Basin, CTIC, with support from the US Environmental Protection Agency, facilitates three public-private partnerships working to further nutrient efficiency, therefore reducing the size of the Gulf of Mexico hypoxic zone.
