Ag Conservation Working Group

Members of the Ag Conservation Working Group work with the Iowa Prairie Seed Calclulator.

The Ag Conservation Working Group consists of conservation professionals, farm managers, landowners, and farmers/producers working together to promote prairie and other conservation practices on the landscape. The group first convened in 2016 and continues to meet annually. The group shares ideas and best practices, networks and identifies partnership opportunities, addresses challenges, and leverages resources. Some topics of discussion include:

  • Native seed availability and seed mix design
  • Development of prescribed fire culture/communities
  • Landowner/farm manager/tenant relationships
  • Conservation practices and cost-share availability

Members of the Ag Conservation Working Group engage in dynamic conversations that lead to action. See summaries from previous working group meetings to learn more:
