Farmers from Logan and Champaign Counties received a National Wildlife Federation Cover Crop Champion grant to spread the word about using cover crops. Linda Vernon and Tim Lyden join us to share why they are so passionate about cover crops. Tim discusses his history in using cover, the challenges he’s faced as well has the benefits seen on his farm. As part of the grant, we will hold farmer round table meetings around Champaign and Logan Counties.

If you are interested in attending one of these meetings, please contact Amanda at for details. Please help us out with grant report by taking our short survey:
