Getting the Most Out of Cover Crops – Lessons Learned from Delayed Termination Strategies on NJ Farms

March 21 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us for this webinar during which presenters will discuss what has worked and what hasn’t from NJ farmer perspectives as they trialed extending their cover crop growing season and managing bigger cover crop biomass.

North Jersey RC&D was funded through a Conservation Innovation Grant to work with farmers to increase the length of growing time of cover crops and manage the covers through roller crimping, planting green, and grazing. These strategies aimed to maximize soil cover, biodiversity, and the presence of living roots in annual crop systems, ultimately increasing the agronomic and economic value of cover crops to agricultural producers. Hear outcomes including paired study results, farmer testimonials, and case studies. NRCS NJ will also discuss the development of a planting green scenario which is available for cost share payments to farmers.

This webinar is presented by USDA NRCS Science and Technology. Contact Jennifer Ryan, Science & Technology Training Library content manager, for more information about this webinar.
