The objectives of these programs are to improve soil health and help preserve and protect our lakes and streams.
Farmer Led Shed Talks – These free sessions help farmers to get a better understanding of the excellent funding available through NRCS for aerial seeding of cover crops and many other Best Management Practices. Other topics include strategies being implemented by local farmers that are protecting land and water resources.
Fall Field Technology Day – Provides a real-time education for farmers on the pros-and cons of planting cover crops, minimal or no-till practices and more.
Water Friendly Farm Program – Identifies farmers who consistently utilize Best Management Practices within their farm operations to improve local water quality.
Aerial Cover Crop Seeding Program – In 2017, the group completed its first aerial cover crop planting program. Oats, barley, wheat and other custom blends were flown into standing corn and soy beans on more than 1100 acres to allow germination ahead of the normal tight window in November. Our goal is to expand this program in fall 21018 to exceed 2000 acres.
