Farmers for Sustainable Food, the Lafayette Ag Stewardship Alliance (LASA), and a variety of other collaborators are working on a pilot project that documents financial and conservation impacts of specific practices on specific farms. The project is designed to help farmers recognize, implement, and document conservation practices that improve environmental and financial sustainability.
