Permalink Decision Tool Analyzes Economics of Cover Crops

Iowa State University is making a new decision tool, Economics of Cover Crops, available free on its Ag Decision Maker website. The tool includes three Excel worksheets: Projected economic costs and benefits of crop crops without grazing or harvesting, Projected economic costs and benefits of crop crops with grazing or harvesting, and Actual economic costs and benefits resulting from cover crops. Producers can use these worksheets to analyze the costs and benefits of cover crops. The tool was developed through collaboration with Practical Farmers of Iowa.
