Farmland Owner Legacy Award Celebration
Friday, June 24 | 5-8 p.m.
Hosts: Practical Farmers of Iowa & Chris Henning
Prairie Skye Productions
Address: 1931 Q Ave. | Jefferson, IA 50129
Join landowner Chris Henning to talk about farmland stewardship and the role engaged landowners can play in conserving our natural resources. Chris will discuss the way she and her farmland tenant collaborate on management decisions and practices like cover crops.
She will also share how they’ve used regular soil sampling and principles of precision agriculture to enhance productivity and soil health, limit chemical interventions and tillage on crop acres and identify opportunities for habitat restoration. Finally, Chris will discuss her experiences with conservation programs like the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) and the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP).
This event is also a celebration of Chris’s dedication to the long-term health and productivity of her farm, as well as her leadership in PFI and the broader agricultural community. During the field day, PFI will award Chris with the 2022 Farmland Owner Legacy Award.
