Screen Shot 2014-01-14 at 4.26.32 PMConservation Technology Information Center (CTIC) wants to know if you are using cover crops on your farm. They are wanting input from farmers on cover crops as a conservation option on farms across the county. The survey just takes 10 minutes or less and is for those using cover crops and those who haven’t tried them yet.

Your input will help improve cover crop programs and efforts to increase access to information and assistance. Report what works and doesn’t work on your farm. If you don’t use cover crops, share why and help CTIC understand where more scientific evidence is needed to encourage your adoption.

Cover crops are any crop intentionally planted between traditional spring/summer cash crop production periods.

After completing the survey, you will have the opportunity to register for two $100 gift card drawings. Gift card registration takes place at a separate website to ensure that your responses to this survey remain completely anonymous. To be eligible for the drawing respond by Jan. 31, 2014.

This survey is sponsored by the USDA Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program and carried out by the CTIC.
