Cover Crop and Soil Health Training
Working with Farmers for Cover Crop Success

We're honored to be selected as a grant recipient by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. In 2019, we'll be teaching a series of free customized trainings for farmers and agronomists. 


These workshops will help improve cover crop practices in an attempt to protect the Chesapeake Bay watershed against run-off and improve over-all soil health.


Pennsylvania no-tiller and cover crop educator Steve Groff will host a seminar for agronomists, seed salespeople, researchers and other stakeholders in agriculture whose job is to work with growers to adopt cover crops and provide technical assistance or guidance.


Steve will cover topics such as:

  • Roadblocks to adoption,

  • Setting realistic goals,

  • What to do or NOT do when sharing anecdotes from innovators, and

  • How to help growers understand the proper mindset for successful adoption.


He’ll also cover mistakes cover crop seed salespeople need to avoid and share some tips for organizing field days that are helpful for growers.


Included with your free training: A 65-page Resource Guide packed full of invaluable information based on 25 years of research and experience in cover cropping.

Your Resource Guide includes:

  • A sample cover crop management plan

  • A comprehensive cover crop decision guide

  • A handy cover crop cheat sheet

  • An overview of cover crop benefits

  • Detailed listings of Cover crop species, mixes and management considerations

  • How to establish a cover crop
