Michigan grant supports expanded cover crops


Michigan agriculture and environmental groups have received $900,000 to support cover crop adoption across the state through the Farmers for Soil Health partnership.

The Corn Marketing Program of Michigan, Michigan Soybean Committee, Michigan Pork Producers Association, Michigan Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, and Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP) hope to establish cover crops on at least 55,000 acres.

Corn Marketing Program of Michigan Director of Research and Agronomy Kristin Poley will lead the project over the next four years.
