IL 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 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.
Want to know more information? Visit our cover crop website. There you can view the individual discounts that each seed company is offering.
Thank you to our partners, Beck’s Hybrids, Saddle Butte, FS, Midwest Grass & Forage, Potential Ag, ProHarvest, and LaCrosse Seed for making this discount to our members possible!
