Permalink Cover Crops Survey Seeking Participants

NCR-SARE is collaborating with the Conservation Technology Information Center to distribute a survey to farmers who have been growing cover crops. One of the goals of the survey is to determine the impact of cover crops on cash crop yields under drought conditions. The organizations are also gathering information about factors influencing cover crop adoption, perceived benefits with cover crops, and the amount farmers are willing to pay for both cover crop seed and establishment. Survey information will be compiled by Conservation Technology Information Center and made available in spring 2013. Farmers who have been growing cover crops can take the survey online.
