Photo showing the use of prairie strips, an agricultural conservation practice

Integrating strips of native prairie vegetation into row crops has been shown to reduce sediment and nutrient loss from fields, as well as improve biodiversity and the delivery of ecosystem services. The inset shows a close-up example of a prairie vegetation strip.
