Cover Crop Cost-Share

Practical Farmers is in its seventh year offering cost-share and technical assistance for those who are seeding fall cover crops.

You can receive $10 per acre on up to 200 acres or 10% of your farmed acres (whichever is larger) and $5 per acre on everything above that. There are no requirements on the species or seeding method used.
