While cover crop use is increasing, they're currently found on less than two percent of cropland in the Mississippi River Basin. Gabe Brown of Brown's Ranch says he expects that to change as more farmers realize the positive impact on water quality and soil health. He says it can also really pay off to use cover crops along with other land conservation and stewardship practices.
Brown will be among the featured speakers at the annual conference of the Practical Farmers of Iowa, this Thursday and Friday at the Iowa State Conference Center in Ames.
