The newest Leopold Center research program, the Cross-Cutting Initiative uses a systems approach and multiple research areas to balance competing and complementary goals of ecosystem health, productivity, economic and social well-being.

The Leopold Center has been a strong supporter of the Long-Term Agroecological Research (LTAR) plots since their establishment in 1998 at the ISU Neely Kinyon Research and Demonstration Farm in Adair County. This work is supported by a competitive grant that is part of the Cross-Cutting Initiative. Details here
