The purpose of this pilot study was to develop four alternative futures or scenarios for growing perennial biomass crops within a 10-mile radius of Madelia, Minnesota. The study's aim was to demonstrate how the multiple functions in Madelia's agricultural landscape can be strategically enhanced to include a broader range of economic and conservation choices for local farmers and residents.
Prepared in partnership with Rural Advantage by the Community Assistantship Program (CAP), administered by the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) at the University of Minnesota.
