The purpose of the program is to promote and refine the use of multi-species cover crops in North Carolina, supporting the national Soil Health Initiative.
Demonstration sites are being established to show producers that a diverse mixture of cover crop species can be planted in a timely manner, allowed to grow and accumulate biomass and nitrogen, and be terminated without tillage.
Investments to date = $424,000 plus in-kind services!
