IL Corn Releases 2023 Cover Crop Coupon
IL Corn is committed to supporting sustainable agricultural practices in Illinois. In collaboration with seed suppliers, they have launched the annual coupon program to make it easier for farmers to access high-quality cover crop seeds, making them more affordable and accessible.
This is the eighth year that the cover crop coupon has been made available to farmers in Illinois and IL Corn continues to see an increase in participation.
“We don’t want cost to be a barrier for farmers when making important farm management decisions that can impact the state,” says Megan Dwyer, Director of Conservation & Nutrient Stewardship. “We already know that incorporating cover crops into farming brings a multitude of benefits, ranging from soil erosion prevention to improved soil health and water quality.”
As we navigate towards a more sustainable future in agriculture, it is essential to embrace practices that promote soil health and overall environmental stewardship. With initiatives like IL Corn's efforts to facilitate affordable cover crop seed, farmers are better equipped to adopt these practices and reap the rewards of a healthier, more resilient farm.
