Learn How Cover Crops Are Good for Water Quality and Farmers’ Bottom Line

NEVADA, Iowa - Caught between unpredictable trade conditions and uncooperative weather, Iowa farmers are under more pressure than ever. Perhaps that’s why recently there has been a surge in interest in the practice of cover cropping: growing non-cash crops in between row crops or in the off-season.

The events are free to attend and a complimentary meal is included.
