We are working to promote and support the adoption of cover crops so that it becomes commonplace for Scott County producers to use them in their farming operations.

Incentives are available for planting cover crops

  • $30/acre for one year up to $2000 maximum

For full details or to sign up contact the Scott SWCD office.


The Scott SWCD has a cover crop inter-seeder and two no-till drills available for rent at $8/acre. Aerial cover crop application is coordinated every August by the SWCD. 

Contact the SWCD for more information.

Soil Health Team

The Scott County Soil Health Team is made up of local producers who meet quarterly to exchange ideas and discuss successes and failures with cover crops.  They also work with the Scott SWCD and Scott WMO to shape the future of our Cover Crop Program. 


If you are interested in joining the Soil Health Team or attending a meeting, let us know!

Workshops and Field Days

The Scott SWCD offers multiple cover crop and soil health workshops and field days. These events provide producers with information and local examples to help them move forward with cover crops.
