Where We Work

The geographic focus of the Midwest Row Crop Collaborative’s impact is the Upper Mississippi River Basin. The core of our portfolio of projects centers around Iowa, Illinois, and Nebraska, with projects extending into other Midwestern states and further down the Mississippi River Basin.

Supporting the impact from our on-the-ground collaborative projects, we maintain cross-cutting efforts focused on enabling policies and shared learning for scaled impact.
