We continue to see a growing interest in the application of cover crops. Last year we aerially seeded right at 1,000 acres. This year we have seeded over 1,700 acres. The cover crops are intended for a variety of outcomes including everything from fixing atmospheric N with legumes to forage for livestock to standard cover. We planted in grass, open soil, wheat stubble, corn for both silage and combining, sorghum and irrigated both flood and sprinkler. We are still learning but are confident that cover crops are something producers should consider not only for forage value but for soil health as well. Attached are some pictures of cover crops in a variety of situations. Also, we are planning an informative meeting for December to discuss our results and have a few speakers give us their take on cover crops and be open for questions. We will keep you posted.
