Governor launches Minn. farm water quality program

Sen. Al Franken, left, and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack listen at a news conference to announce details of the Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program, Monday, June 10, 2013 in St. Paul, Minn. Farmers who sign up must agree to adopt good conservation practices to control soil erosion and the runoff of manure, fertilizers and insecticides. In return, they'll get the guaranteed certainty that they won't be subjected to stricter rules for 10 years as long as they meet their obligations. Technical and financial assistance will be available. (AP Photo/The Star Tribune, ) MANDATORY CREDIT; ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS OUT; MAGS OUT; TWIN CITIES TV OUT
