Join us as the presenter discusses strategies that are being implemented to help farmers in northern climates succeed with interseeding of cover crops
Join the presentation to learn about strategies being implemented to enhance the productivity of interseeded cover crops in northern climates. Interseeding cover crops can help farmers in northern regions grow a diverse mixture of cover crops otherwise not possible in most cases following a full season cash crop such as corn. However, intereseeding success has been variable and farmers are concerned with making the investment with so much risk. Starting in 2020, UVM Extension working with 30 farms throughout VT to implement a variety of practices that modified both how farmers grew the corn silage crop and how the cover crop interseeding was deployed. The goal was to modify both corn and cover crop practices to optimize cover crop establishment while not impacting the corn silage yield. The strategies deployed and the outcomes of the on-farm trial project will be highlighted through this webinar.
