What We Do
Delta Institute supports 1,000 farmers as they transition to sustainable and regenerative practices, thus improving the environment, mitigating the impacts of climate change, and strengthening a farmer’s bottom line. We forecast that by 2025, one million Midwestern agricultural acres will successfully transition to conservation-focused farming practices, so our region’s primary economic driver can be more environmentally and financially sound.
We’re expanding conservation in the Midwestern agricultural economy by focusing on:
Farmland Valuation and Appraisal
Conservation-Focused Farming Practices
Expanding Grass-Fed Beef Market Drivers in the Greater Chicago Foodshed
Conservation Hotspot Analysis in Illinois
Land Stewardship in Southeast Michigan
Phosphorus Reduction in the Kalamazoo River Watershed
Pay-for-Performance Agricultural Conservation: Rabbit River Watershed
