One Good Idea is a new online platform and campaign created by a multi-state team of university Extension professionals and farmers. It creates a centralized location for farmers to learn from their peers about practices that can improve water, soil, land, and bottom lines, such as cover crops, conservation tillage, rotational grazing, and nutrient management. One Good Idea is crowdsourced to collect videos and podcasts that feature farmers’ ideas and experiences with these practices from university Extension, nonprofits, government agencies, farmer-led groups and individual farmers from across the Midwest and Mid-south.
