NH Cover Crops Team

The NH Cover Crops team is launching their We've Got it Covered! campaign, which recognizes farms that are making good use of cover crops. Participating farms receive a sign they can display in their fields, letting people know that they're doing their part to keep their soils healthy and surrounding waters clean.

Participation is easy - if you have fields that are sown to cover crops, pick up a sign at your local Extension, NRCS, or Conservation District office. We also invite you to share photos of your cover crop successes on social media, labeling it with the hashtag #nhcovercrops.

This effort is generously supported by the NH Vegetable & Berry Growers Association, Farm Credit East's AgEnhancement Grant, and Johnny's Selected Seeds. Thank you!

 

By keeping soil and plant nutrients in place, cover crops help to protect soil and water, resulting in a healthier  working agricultural landscape for us all. The NH Cover Crops Team - representing farmers, USDA-NRCS, COnservation Districts, and Extension - is working to develop programs that encourage and support more widespread use of this beneficial practice.
