NRCS Small Grain Iowa, Minnesota, & Wisconsin Project

Farmers in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin who receive cost share to add a year of small grains to a corn and soybean rotation provide their production data from each year in the rotation. This data will be used to understand the environmental impact of extending rotations by an additional year and communicate these benefits to companies with an interest in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in their supply chain.
