agricultural conservation planning framework

A team led by an Agronomist researchers will expand and revamp an electronic toolbox designed to help farmers and landowners identify the conservation practices best suited for their land.

The team received a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service to add to and expand the Agricultural Conservation Planning Framework (ACPF), which was first completed in 2013. ACPF relies on data concerning field boundaries, land use and soil conditions for watersheds across the upper Midwest to help guide decisions on conservation practices to improve watershed health and water quality.
