Cover Crop Coffee Break

Join us for a COVER CROP COFFEE BREAK

Thinking about trying some different cover crops after wheat this year?

Here is an opportunity to see cover crop plots in the spring. Have a look at soil cover, soil structure and the impact of cover crops on water infiltration. Help us to count earthworms.

Spring considerations for cover crops: What survived? How to control? Planting into cover crop residues?
