It was former farmland and is NOT 'prairie grasses'. Nor could it be, as prairie has to be large scale and contiguous while these are small fragments of land, scattered everywhere. It is just being returned to useful production rather than sitting idle while the 'farmer' rakes in government 'land bank' money and sips pina coladas.
