Learn  WHEN and HOW you can TERMINATE YOUR COVER CROPS and not jeopardize the crop insurance coverage of cash crops that follow.  Thursday, January 23rd 2014 at 2:00pm EST. Download the webinar flyer.

More than ever before, farmers are planting cover crops because they retain soil moisture, reduce erosion, and maximize profitability. Given these and other recognized conservation benefits of cover crops, USDA directed an interagency task force to put together cover crop termination guidelines so farmers who use cover crops do not lose their crop insurance coverage. The new guidelines are available by clicking here.

  • Tim Hoffmann – Director of Product Administration and Standards, Risk Management Agency
  • Norm Widman – National Agronomist, Natural Resources Conservation Service
