Integrating cover crops into corn and soybean cropping systems is the topic of the October 28 Iowa Learning Farms webinar.
Learn how cover crops can be a win-win for cash crops and the environment. During this webinar, Sarah Carlson, Strategic Initiatives Director at Practical Farmers of Iowa, will share research results about how cover crops can help farmers grow better corn and soybean crops, while also protecting water quality and improving soil health.
“Cover crops are not just good for water quality and soil health but should also be a part of the crop production decision-making discussion,” said Carlson, who will explain the economic benefits of using cover crops.
Carlson works to transfer agronomic research about cover crops and small grains through supply chain projects, articles, blogs and presentation materials, while working to improve the support for cover crop and small grain research.
