Feeling the cover crop crunch?
Free guide teaches you how to increase yield, improve soil health and build the long-term value of your farm
What if you could add $25 of N value per acre — for free? Or “magically” help your land store an extra inch of rain?
Imagine losing less than 100 pounds of soil over 1000 acres…
That’s the power of cover cropping.
Planting cover crops on your acres is the surest way to lower erosion, increase nutrient and water availability, improve soil structure, reduce weed pressure and control pests.
But let’s be honest. If cover crops were so simple, everyone would be planting them.
You’re not afraid of hard work. After all, you’re a farmer. But the learning curve… That’s the kicker. You’re not just planting a few acres. Without knowing what you’re doing, there’s no way you could afford the time and money it would take to experiment with cover crops — no matter how beneficial they might turn out to be.
That’s the cover crop crunch. You know you should be using them, but getting started is just too… hard, right? Wrong.
