Cover Crop

Achieve net positive or “break-even” with cost-shares and management

Management Opportunities

• Omit tillage pass while maintaining yields
• Hay savings from increased forage production

Cover crops can cost less if farmers, are intentional about seed and application costs (mix cover crop application with an existing pass)
