Farming with the Wild

In order to compete in the global food and fiber system, farmers have often had to overlook wildlife preservation and landscape conservation to ensure short-term economic survival. But farmers can and should be encouraged to manage their lands more sustainably while protecting wildland values, in the interest of securing the long-term profitability of the two intertwined systems. Pollinators and beneficial insects are critical for the success of sustainable agriculture and are dependent on the presence of permanent vegetation. Healthy riparian systems are essential for agriculture, protecting against floods, providing stable banks, clean water and habitat for fish and wildlife. Winter-flooded fields can become migratory waterfowl habi­tat while also reducing weed pressures. The list of benefits goes on and on.
