Friday Session III
Curious if that one under-producing field could make more money as a pasture, or if cover crops could boost yields or reduce inputs enough to offset their cost? The LSP Cropping Systems Calculator runs “what if” scenarios like these to estimate costs and yields for various row crops, perennials and grazing systems. Learn how this tool works, plus look at the financial viability of conservation and soil-building practices.
Rebecca Wasserman-Olin is the economic researcher on the Chippewa 10% Project, a collaborative effort led by Land Stewardship Project and the Chippewa River Watershed Project. She analyzes the financial viability of conservation and soil-building practices.
