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.
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.
