This project engages two farmers to implement more than 1,000 acres of cover crops, conduct trials of eight or more innovative methods to advance cover crop and no-till techniques, and create infrastructure that lessens soil compaction and nutrient losses from fields. More than 20 acres of forested buffers will be restored in these watersheds.
