Our Team

One Good Idea is run by Extension specialists and educators from land grant universities in the Midwest and Mid-South, along with a dedicated group of farmer advisors.

We are an initiative of SERA-46, a committee for land grant university research and extension focused on science and strategies for reducing nutrient loss in the Mississippi and Atchafalaya River Basins.
