Benefits Farmers Can Reap from Agroecosystem Management
Watch as Marshall McDaniel, an associate professor at Iowa State university, talks us through the benefits farmers can reap by incorporating agroecosystem management techniques on-farm, from incorporating cover crops to reducing tillage, integrating livestock, and diversifying cropping systems. All these practices can help improve farm performance and increase resilience in the face of climate change.
