Have you utilized a cover crop cost-share program such as the Environmental Quality Incentives Program or Conservation Stewardship Program to plant a cover crop?
Did you apply for them, only to find roadblocks that kept you from ultimately utilizing the program? Are you considering using a cost-share program to get into cover crops?
Cornell University, with support from Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education, is conducting an external assessment of cover crop incentive programs in Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont. The assessment is based on farmer feedback, so they are seeking fruit, vegetable, field crop, grain and mixed crop-livestock producers to take a five- to 10-minute survey. You do not need to have experience with cover crops to participate.
The goal is to identify how cover crop incentive programs can be improved to better suit farmer needs. Key findings from the survey will be shared widely and communicated directly to local, state, and federal program administrators.
