OSAGE, Iowa – Some local farmers are being rewarded by the Governor for their leadership when it comes to the environment.

Wayne and Ruth Fredricks, are doing things a little differently.

They just received the “Iowa Environmental Leader Award” for some of the techniques they use to grow crops.

It includes nutritional management techniques and growing cover crops.

Fredericks says he and his wife were overwhelmed when they learned they were receiving the award.

“I felt it was an honor to be chosen and excited to receive it, and something that you didn’t expect,” said Fredricks.

The Fredricks are just one of 63 who received the award.
