Abstract

This document reports the results of a survey conducted for the Landowners and Operators Caring About the Land (LOCAL) project. The LOCAL project is a joint effort between Conservation Districts of Iowa, Agren, Inc., and Iowa State University (ISU) Extension Sociology. Funded by a Conservation Innovation (CIG) grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the purpose of the project is to develop and promote market-based incentives that lead farm operators and non-operator landowners to implement conservation-friendly management on rented farmland. The overall goal of the program is to improve the mutual capacity and willingness of non-operator landowners and their operators to achieve conservation objectives. This report addresses objective 1 of the project: to improve our understanding of landowner and operator willingness and capacity to participate in and support natural resources conservation on Iowa’s farmland.
