Payments available for fall cover crops
fall cover crop incentive
A radish and cereal rye cover protect the soil after corn silage. It is important to get a cover crop established as soon as possible in fall to protect the soil. Incentive payments are available from the producer-led watershed group, Farmers of the Sugar River, to area watershed farmers to ease the financial burden of using cover crops.
MONROE — Those interested in cover crops after corn sileage can receive help with costs from the Farmers of the Sugar River.
