Converting Cropland to Perennial Grassland
Since 2009, 53 million acres of grassland—an area the size of Kansas—have been converted to cropland across the Great Plains, having a significant impact on wildlife and the ecosystem services that grasslands provide. World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has released the first edition of a new annual publication called the Plowprint Report, whose purpose is to track annual grassland conversion to cropland across the Great Plains, and to provide a consistent way to measure the loss of this important habitat type. Two versions of the Plowprint Report are available online—both a general information and a technical edition.
