Cover Crops

The Spring Soil Health Workshop on February 12 was well attended by local producers.  It covered “Integrated Control of Canada Thistle”, “Soil Health or Why Microbes Matter” and “No-Till and Cover Crops”.  (see Spring Newsletter for Recap)

The District was awarded grants through DNRC for cover crop seed cost share program.  As part of the grant that we received, we are pleased to reimburse producers up to $2,000.00 towards cover crop seed mixes.  The seed mixes must include a minimum of 5 species covering 3 crop types.  NRCS will provide technical assistance in designing cover crop mixes at your request.

UPDATE:  This grant has now closed.  Thank you for your interest.
