Steve McGrew on ‘Conservation Chat’

Iowa farmer and cover crop enthusiast Steve McGrew stopped by” Conservation Chat” to talk with Jacqueline Comito about sustainable farming practices.

Steve brings a real curiosity and entrepreneurial spirit to the discussion of cover crops, talking about his ongoing experimentation with mixtures and species diversity. He points out the value of early adoption when it comes to finding the most effective solutions for the specific needs of local farmers. Steve works with his three brothers and his nephew on their family farm in Southwestern Iowa. Steve has 20 years of experience with cover crops, and says there is always more you can learn.
