CRP Outcomes May 2022 Webinar: Scaling Saturated Buffer Adoption using the Agricultural Conservation Planning Framework

May 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT


Presenter: Keegan Kult, Executive Director of the Agricultural Drainage Management Coalition

Traditional conservation practice delivery is not equipped to handle the demands of scaled-up implementation needed to meet regional nutrient reduction goals. As evidenced by the low adoption rates to date, this is especially true for practices that require technical knowledge like Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) Saturated Buffers. While little work has been done to assess the barriers to adoption from a farmer or landowner’s perspective, experienced practitioners in central Iowa sought to develop a new practice delivery framework that would address as many stakeholder barriers to adoption as possible through the Polk County Saturated Buffer Project. Keegan Kult, Executive Director of the Agricultural Drainage Management Coalition, will discuss piloting a systematic approach to modernize agricultural drainage infrastructure with the goal of accelerating conservation drainage practice adoption within the confines of existing technical and financial assistance programs.
