Covering Your Bases with Cover Crops – A Seed World Webinar & Podcast

It’s time to cover all of our bases — with cover crops, that is! This year was a mess, from the late spring, to flooding in the Midwest, to late planting. We want to find out what problems seed companies faced with cover crops this year, and what their suggestions are as the summer of 2019 comes to a close.

What you’ll learn:

  • What the demand for cover crops looked like for 2019, and how the late planting and flooding affected these numbers.
  • The best management practices when it comes to cover crops and what a few different cover crop seed companies suggest.
  • What cover crop options growers have and what seed companies recommend for 2019-2020.
