Cover Crop Cost-Share Available for Seed Corn Growers
Do you grow seed corn in Iowa? If so, you may be eligible for financial assistance from the Iowa Seed Corn Cover Crops Initiative, which is exclusive to seed corn growers in Iowa. The Iowa Seed Corn Cover Crops Initiative focuses on ways to help increase adoption of cover crops specifically within the seed corn production system in Iowa. The focus on seed corn is driven by the unique opportunity that seed corn provides due to the earlier harvest, thereby providing better timing opportunities for establishing cover crops in the late summer and fall after harvest.
