Cover Crops

Cover Crops

What's your strategy?

Nutrient loss is an important issue when considering the best management practices of a farm. There is an inherent need to stop events like erosion that wipe out the nutrient composition of the soil. Cover crops have the potential to reduce nutrient loss.

Illinois Corn, along with the Zea Mays Foundation, is encouraging farmers to use best management practices on their farms that will reduce nitrate loss by 15% by 2025 and reduce phosphate loss by 25% by 2025. To help support this goal, Illinois Corn Growers Association is working with several partners to provide programs and incentives to try best management practices like cover crops including a seed coupon for members and reduced cost opportunity.

Cover Crop Coupon for Members

Illinois Corn Growers Association is partnering with several seed companies to give ICGA members the opportunity to buy cover crop seed at a discounted price. Unlike the reduced cost cover crop program, this incentive is available to all members but does not include aerial application. The coupons create a $150-200 value off of a bag of seed. Below you can find out the specifics of each coupon and the contact information for each company.

A big thank you to ALL of the companies that partnered with us to make this discount possible!
