Field Profitability Improvement Program


The Iowa County Land Conservation Department has incentive funding for a precision ag pilot program. Farmers can earn $5/acre to work with a Conservation Specialist on yield map and budget analysis to find negative ROI acres. An additional $25/acre will be paid in any areas converted to perennial vegetation as a result of the analysis.

Let us help you discover solutions to managing low-yielding areas on your farm.


Contact Katie Abbott at (608) 930-9893 or katherine.abbott@iowacounty.org with questions.
