Prairie Strip Webinar
Much of Illinois was once covered in a diverse prairie ecosystem:. Wildlife thrived and water flowed clean. Today, recreating a small fraction of that native vegetation could move us toward our water quality and habitat goals, while improving farm profitability.
Sand County Foundation, Pheasants Forever, and Iowa State University are excited to host a webinar series throughout February to show how and why strategically planted strips of prairie can benefit Illinois’ streams, pollinators, and farmers.
Join us from 8 AM to 9 AM CT, each Tuesday on February 8, 15, and 22. The webinar series is designed for agronomists, consultants, and farmers. We will discuss:
Feb. 8 | How to lay out prairie strips to maintain efficient field operations and maximize per-acre return on investment
Feb. 15 | Strategies for site preparation, seeding, and management of prairie strips
Feb. 22 | Potential benefits of prairie strips for pollinators and crop production
