Cover Crops and Crop Insurance Webinar – Register Today!

Webinar Clarifies Cover Crop Termination Guidelines

More than ever, farmers are planting cover crops to retain soil moisture, reduce erosion, and maximize profitability. Given these and other recognized benefits of cover crops, USDA directed an interagency task force to put together cover crop termination guidelines so farmers who use cover crops don’t risk losing their crop insurance coverage, as has unfortunately happened in the past.

On January 23rd, 2014 at 1:00p – 2:30p, the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition and The National Center for Appropriate Technology are co-hosting a webinar for farmers, farm organizations, and other interested parties that seeks to clarify these new guidelines.

This webinar will offer participants the chance to hear from cover crop and crop insurance policy experts as well as ask questions directly to presenters.
