The ISA Research Center for Farming Innovation (RCFI) has been in communication with the firm, Two Degrees Adapt. Two Degrees Adapt is currently working with The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and the Walton Family Foundation to conduct a study on Midwest agriculture. The central focus of this study is assessing the economics of different land uses (e.g., conventional row crops, alternative crops, solar and wind leasing).
What to Expect
You can expect to answer questions similar to:
- How do you define marginal farmland?
- Do you look at marginal land on a long-term scale or year-to-year?
- Would you consider alternate crop practices?
- Would you consider leasing ground to solar or wind?
The survey takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.
