Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
This program is for growers extending their cropping rotation with a small-grain and legume cover crop.
We have cost-share for both the small-grain and corn years of your rotation.
Farmers who grow vegetables, fruit, flowers, and orchard crops will gather together in locations around the state meet one another, build relationships, share plans and ideas with others in their regions, and learn as they all prepare for the coming season.
