Ongoing studies by the USDA’s Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program, including its annual national cover crop survey, are breaking down the benefits and best practices for cover crop usage in conservation tillage systems. Dr. Rob Myers is Regional Director of Extension Programs North Central SARE program, and oversees several projects related to cover crops and soil health both regionally and nationally.
Myers shares and analyzes results from the most recent cover crop survey with insight from more than 2,000 farmers. He will include yield and economic data, as well as examples of new equipment approaches from around the country.
