Combating Climate and Erosion with Cover Crops (June 2019)

Scott Wohltman, Cover Crop Chair for the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) and agronomist for La Crosse Seed talks about a recent D.C. trip to tell lawmakers about the tight supplies for cover crops in a time where a number of farmers are looking at planting covers on prevented plant acres. Wohltman also discusses crop insurance decisions, loss of forage, the importance of the quality of seed, keeping a living root in the ground to improve soil health, and he gives some guidelines for what he would be doing in this very frustrating season.
