Description

Iowa is a national leader in sustainable agriculture research and education. Although many states have made verbal commitments to natural resource and environmental issues, Iowa passed the landmark 1987 Iowa Groundwater Protection Act, which established the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture. Although the Leopold Center is known primarily for funding research to develop profitable farming systems that conserve Iowa's natural resources, it also has a mandate to develop with the Iowa Cooperative Extension Service and other organizations an educational framework to deliver research findings to Iowa citizens.
