MSU working to prevent cover crop failure

A conservation agronomist is working with farmers to overcome challenges that come with incorporating cover crops.

Madelyn Celovsky with Michigan State University Extension tells Brownfield weather can be a barrier.

“This year was especially challenging, with harvest being delayed,” she shares. “Farmers that were planning on planting cover crops, a lot of them didn’t get it in.”

Celovsky says many farmers have tried cover crops before and abandoned the practice because of bad experiences.
