Field Crops Viability Coordinator

Practical Farmers of Iowa’s (PFI) farm viability department provides innovative, personalized support to help farmers achieve their goals. We partner with farmers to implement new on-farm practices, develop markets and create robust farm business plans. We develop strategic partnerships across the food and agriculture supply chains and shape the policies that encourage resilient farms to thrive.

Within the farm viability department, the field crops viability team oversees regenerative, row-crop financial assistance programs. In 2023, these programs supported over 2,100 farmers adopting cover crops, diverse rotations and improved nutrient management. The team works closely with major supply chain partners such as PepsiCo and Unilever to drive large-scale landscape change.

This position will support the work of the field crops viability team by providing technical assistance to farmers implementing regenerative row-crop practices, planning events to support communities of practice and helping farmers through the cost-share sign-up process and complete program requirements once enrolled.
