Prairie STRIPS presentation

A couple weeks ago through my affiliation with the Central Iowa Permaculture Guild, I had the pleasure to invite Tim Youngquist, Iowa State University Agronomy Specialist, to present on the STRIPS program through Iowa State University.

STRIPS stands for Science-based Trials of Rowcrops Integrated with Prairie Strips.
Made up of a multidisciplinary group, comprising scientists, educators, farmers, and extension
specialists, the STRIPS team conducts research on the prairie strips conservation practice.

Enjoy this presentation on the STRIPS program given at the November 2015 Central Iowa Permaculture Guild meeting.

Spreading Prairie STRIPS to Iowa Farms for Improved Water Quality,
Soil Conservation, and Biodiversity

Have a great week!
