Abstract

Farming in the Des Moines Lobe often means growing corn and soybeans in prairie potholes. Similarly, other areas of the state deal with low-lying areas that have some of the same problems as prairie potholes: higher cost of production due to more frequent replantings, lower yield potential and, consequently, lower profitability. With tight profit margins this year and last, consider a more economical and environmental use for those areas.
