The Root Project

Cover crops are an essential part of healthy soil.

As part of our ongoing efforts to educate, train and inform, we've developed a graphic showing the cross-sectional view of several popular and effective cover crops. 

This high-quality graphic is extremely detailed and scalable. It's available for non-commercial use in your applications for presentations, seminars and workshops when cover crops are discussed. 

This project was funded in part by USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service. USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer, and lender.
