The Uplands Virtual Conservation Roadtrip is a collaborative project between Michael Fields Agricultural Institute and farmers in the Iowa County Uplands Watershed Group. The idea behind the road trip is similar to USDA’s #OurFarmer Roadtrip, in which it aims to showcase some farmers who incorporate diverse conservation management practices on their land. Through short videos, consumers, researchers and everyone in between, can learn about why implementation of various conservation practices are important for their business and benefit the environment. For more information, see a recent article published by Lynn Grooms of Agri-View.
