IMG_9917This year at the Commodity Classic, the Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC) was present to talk with farmers about cover crops for conservation.

CTIC has a grant to promote cover crops in seven states and they held a learning center session at Classic to educate farmers about their cover crop options, according to CTIC Project Director Chad Watts. “At this conference we attract a lot of people from the north and they’re all worried about the window and how they can fit cover crops in during the fall and still get enough growth on them before it gets too cold,” said Watts, who adds that there are many choices for producers.
