Precision Conservation: Increasing Profitability and Conservation on Your Farm

By Practical Farmers of Iowa

Have you ever wondered when it’s best to remove portions of your field from crop production? Farm-specific ag data can pinpoint marginal areas of your farm where it costs more to grow a crop than what you’ll earn from those acres. In this webinar, Stephanie Nelson of Pheasants Forever explains how yield and satellite data lends itself to conservation analysis. She also discusses the services and incentives Pheasants Forever can provide if you are considering conservation changes on your farm. Then, join row crop farmer Jacob Bolson as he leads a live virtual tour of his acreage, which is enrolled in a new five-year contract with the Natural Resource Conservation Service’s Conservation Stewardship Program for pollinator habitat.
