Prairie STRIPS is an agricultural conservation practice being developed by
the STRIPS team at Iowa State University.  Originally researched through a
field experiment at USFWS Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge, it’s now
proving to be cost-effective way to blend production and conservation goals
on private, commercial farms in the Midwest. Prairie strips harness the
productivity, stability, and benefits of the historically dominant
ecosystem that once blanketed the Midwest.  Today they’re helping to build
farming systems that produce clean water, wildlife, and wonder in addition
to food, feed, fiber and fuel.
