Designing cover crops to work for your farm

Cover crops can provide a host of benefits, including controlling weeds, reducing erosion, adding nutrients and soil organic matter to soil, providing habitat for pollinators, alleviating soil compaction, and various other functions. However, not all cover crops are equal. This workshop will provide information about what cover crop species and management techniques are optimal for the various desired functions, and how to utilize cover crops that make sense for your farm.
