The U. S. Soil Conservation Service assists Iowa farmers to plan and apply soil and water conservation practices on farm land. Farmers themselves decide which practices they will apply. Almost all soil conservation practices affect wildlife. Most of them help by stabilizing land use patterns, increasing the ecotone, and adding or protecting herbaceous and woody cover. Iowa conservation farmers are making an important contribution by establishing and maintaining conservation practices beneficial to a varied and important wildlife population.
