North Jersey Resource Conservation & Development, in partnership with New Jersey Audubon and Stroud Water Research Center, has created a comprehensive No-Till and Cover Crop Online Education Program.

We are inviting public, private, and non-profit agricultural service providers to participate in a five-part, interactive, webinar training series emphasizing no-till and cover crop implementation that will train agricultural service providers to better support farmers who are preparing for and implementing in-field soil health practices.

Topics include:

  • Steps farmers should take to prepare for no-till.
  • Different types of no-till equipment and attachments.
  • Nutrient management in a no-till setting.
  • Practical cover crop seed selection tips.
  • Cover crop application methods for every crop system.
  • Cover crop termination techniques.

Webinars will occur once a week for five weeks during August, and early September from 9:00 to 10:30 am. To keep group sizes small and encourage a more regional dialog, each workshop will be offered three times each week. Each day of the week will emphasize a different region with different soils, climate, and crops.

Participants will be eligible for Maryland and Pennsylvania Nutrient Management CECs and Certified Crop Advisor CEUs*. In addition, all participants will receive a copy of the newly released book, “A Practical Guide to No-Till and Cover Crop.”
