Abstract

Prairie strips are a proven tool for improving and protecting row-cropped farm fields. Iowa State University researchers have shown that areas of native prairie planted in the right places in a farm field can provide benefits that far outweigh losses from converting a small portion of a crop field to prairie. They developed this practice through the Science-based Trials of Row-crops Integrated with Prairie Strips (STRIPS) project.
