Prairie strip impact is webinar topic

     The impact of prairie strips on soil health and crop yield is the topic of the Iowa Learning Farms webinar at noon on Wednesday, May 26.

     Prairie strips are contour strips of native prairie species that are used like terraces. Prairie strips take up only 10 percent of a farm field but have disproportional benefits. Marshall McDaniel, assistant professor in soil-plant interactions at Iowa State University, will explore what happens to soil under and around prairie strips and how this might affect crop yield.

     To participate in the live webinar, shortly before noon on May 26: Go to and enter meeting ID: 364 284 172.

     The webinar will also be recorded and archived on the learning farms website, so that it can be watched at any time.
