Traditional soil and water conservation has mostly promoted in-field practices and structures - waterways, terraces and buffer strips, for example - to reduce rainfall runoff and reduce sheet and rill erosion. However, as Iowa shifts its focus to reducing nitrogen and phosphorus loading to also benefit surface water quality, it is recognized that edge of field practices – restored wetlands, saturated buffers and bioreactors - will be needed. Learn from land improvement contractors what these are, their benefits, and how to build them, in this one-hour webinar.
The Iowa Farm Bureau Federation (IFBF) will host a major agricultural summit on July 20 in Ames to provide farmers insights for managing through the stressful economic period and to discuss potential opportunities.
