Abstract

 CP42 is a general conservation practice that attempts to establish pollinator-friendly habitat

 In total, >500,000 acres have been converted to CP42 (>40% of which is in Iowa) [1]

 To date, there has been no formal assessment of practice success (i.e., post-seeding forb establishment)

 In this study, we assess forb establishment in randomly selected CP42 fields near Cedar Falls, Iowa

 We identify forbs with high/low establishment and relate this to seed cost in an effort to improve seed mix design
