Precision Conservation – Bringing Back the Edges

By Practical Farmers of Iowa

Using the principles of precision conservation, farmers like Nathan Anderson of Aurelia, IA and landowners like Chris Henning of Cooper, IA are setting aside small, unproductive areas of their farm for wildlife habitat. These beautiful edges and patches around the farm not only harbor birds, bees and other critters, they help clean up the water and provide a nice place to relax and enjoy nature. They also help improve farmers’ bottom lines. Learn more about precision conservation in this episode of Bringing Back the Edges: Creating Wildlife Habitat on Farms.
