AMES, Iowa—The Iowa Learning Farms webinar on Wednesday, March 17 at noon, will focus on how to incorporate conservation practices into a farm lease agreement.
Charles Brown, farm management specialist, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, will discuss the importance of conservation practices and what landowners should include in their lease to protect their farmland. Participants will learn how costs may be shared for certain conservation practices.
“Every landowner should be concerned about our water quality and soil erosion,” said Brown. “Conservation practices can be a win/win for both the landowner and the tenant.”
As an extension farm management specialist, Brown works with farmers to construct farm leases and protect their farmland. He also uses conservation practices on his own farm.
