Description

Iowa’s agriculture is dominated by two major crops, corn and soybean, used primarily as feed sources. Soybean serves a dual purpose as a source of protein for livestock feed and oil. Crop diversification can be used as a means to accelerate crop productivity and profitability in terms of newer crop options to farmers (specifically small farmers), better quality, quantity, and economic value of the crops.
