Cover crops have many benefits to the landowner and the community.
Cover crops help to protect water quality and build soil health.
Cover crops help to reduce loss of nutrients and topsoil, reduce the amount and speed of water running off of land, and reduce wind speed at ground level which reduces wind and water erosion and the speed of water runoff.
