Prevented Planting and Cover Crops

Although not the problem of 2015, some areas have experienced extreme weather resulting in prevented planting. As with last year, these acres should be managed in ways to prevent soil degradation and increase soil productivity for next year.

To assist field staff in answering farmers’ and landowners’ questions about managing these acres – especially with the use of cover crops – CCSI has developed and collected presentations and handouts that may be used to create short informational meetings.
