New Cover Crop Publications from the NPM Program

The UW NPM Program has two new cover crop publications!

Cover Crops 101 (A4176) is an 8- page booklet that provides basic information specific to Wisconsin farmers and agronomists about the challenges and benefits of adding cover crops to their cropping systems. Topics include establishment, residual herbicide considerations, termination guidelines, forage and grazing information as well as many others. This publication is available for viewing and purchase from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Extension Learning Store:

Herbicide Rotational Restrictions for Cover Crop and Forage Cropping Systems provides a starting point of reference when considering using cover crops following herbicides in the cropping system. This publication does not replace the herbicide label for information but outlines rotational intervals for many commonly used herbicides in Wisconsin (8 pages).  Currently this publication is available only online as a PDF.
