Cover Crops For Fall & Government Funding
Below in this email, Blair has compiled some key points from the On Farm Climate Action Fund and how to qualify.
Some people use traditional fall rye as a cover once hills are formed in potatoes by spreading on, others are seeding barley between their bean windrows and having good luck reducing erosion.
Rye, Winter Wheat, Barley, Daikon Radish, Clovers, Italian Ryegrass and more is available.
Let us help you plan a rotation / cover that works for you and look below for some possible funding for seed.
This program asks that you go beyond the routine farm or project site practice to be eligible.
