Cover crop season seems a ways off as we still have not begun much field work, but one of the keys to successful cover cropping is planning. As part of creating a good plan with lots of options, the University of Vermont Extension Northwest Crops and Soils Program is going to start sharing regular Soil Health Update information on our Out Croppings Blog. This will include information on cover crops, no-till, soil building, improving crops, and more.
We invite you to join our Out Croppings community by signing up to receive weekly updates on what’s going on with soil health, cover cropping, and other things for you to consider. We will bring to you pictures, recommendations about planting and terminating cover crops, equipment profiles, highlight cover crop properties that improve soil health, and other options to help you make the best decisions for your operation in regards to soil health. We will let you know of NRCS, State and other sign-up deadlines, NRCS recommendations, field reports, and herbicide considerations to help you as you explore this emerging cropping system. We will share interesting links to articles and products that you can use to make cover cropping work for your operation. Please sign-up to receive these weekly updates. You can let us know what information you are looking for, and we will find it for you. Thank you!
We look forward to sharing information with you! If you have any questions, please contact Susan Brouillette at firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-524-6501.
