COVER CROPS

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.

Workshops and Field Days

We offer 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.

Incentives are available for planting cover crops

  • $40/acre/year for planting cover crops for three consecutive years on the same fields

  • $20/acre/year for planting one year of cover crops

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

 

The Scott SWCD has a cover crop inter-seeder available for rent, along with two no-till drills.
Find out about all our rental equipment program here.

Cover Crop Email Newsletter

Every month the Scott SWCD sends out a Cover Crop Email Newsletter with the latest Scott SWCD cover crop program information, upcoming events, and the latest news and resources.  Email us to start receiving these monthly emails.

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!
