Close up of cover crops P.J. Griekspoor
MEETINGS COMING: A series of cover crop informational meetings are set for Sept. 22 and 23. The seminars are designed to provide farmers, conservation enthusiasts and the general public with information on the value of planting cover crops.

No-Till on the Plains plans cover crop meetings

Cover crop meetings will provide insights into the value of planting cover crops.

No-till on the Plains is hosting three cover crop informational meetings on Sept. 22-23. The meetings will provide insight to attendees about the value of planting cover crops.

Farmers, conservationists and the public are invited to the meetings to learn about where, when and why to plant cover crops. Doug Peterson, retired NRCS soil health specialist, will share his 30-plus years of knowledge with attendees.

The meetings are being held in partnership with Country Crock, and its parent company Upfield, as part of the brand’s new sustainability initiative, The Cover Crops Project.

The partnership between No-till on the Plains and Country Crock aims to launch a new cover crop cost-share program for eastern Kansas and western Missouri growers.

Details of the new cost-share program will be covered during each of the meetings. The program is ideal for growers wanting to try cover crops or add acres that have not been previously planted to a cover crop.  Participants will be offered $10 per acre on their qualified acres. A map of the eligible counties and the contract can be found on the No-till on the Plains website.

Meetings will be held on Sept. 22 in Spring Hill, Kan., and Archie, Mo., and on Sept. 23 in Independence, Kan.
