Five Benefits of Cover Crops
The Center for Rural Affairs released Guide To Cover Crop Cost Share in Iowa, a fact sheet that describes state, federal, and industry-based programs available to assist Iowa farmers and landowners with the cost of cover crops. “We know implementing cover crops can be a significant cost in your operations, especially with commodity prices where they are currently,” said Kayla Bergman, policy associate for the Center for Rural Affairs. “That’s why cost-share programs that offset these costs are crucial.” Programs included in this guide not only provide technical assistance, they also provide financial assistance for implementation.
