Landlords seek cover crops?

Landlords seek cover crops?
Think Different While surveys have shown most landlords trust their tenants in making land-management decisions, signs point to a new consumer-oriented generation of landlords who want more environmental accountability. These landlords may be further removed from farming, but they have online access to soil health information and may be more likely to insist on soil-building practices such as cover crops than did their parents.

All the recent focus on cover crops as a key to soil health hasn’t escaped a growing number of landlords, even as they continue to be further removed from the land. In fact, trends point to the landlords of the future wanting more soil-building and accountability to confirm their soil is in good hands with their tenant.
