Cover crops green up rural Iowa landscape

We announced last week our renewed partnership with the Iowa Seed Association.

The partnership makes way for another Row Crop Run series. The Row Crop Run series, which launched in spring 2019, features seed corn growers who have or had enrolled in cost-share opportunities made available through the Iowa Seed Corn Cover Crop Initiative

Shannon Moeller, project coordinator for the Iowa Seed Corn Cover Crop Initiative, last week offered additional insight into the project, which focuses on ways to help increase adoption of cover crops, specifically within Iowa’s seed corn production system.

Today we bring in a seed corn grower who was featured in our first Row Crop Run series. Steve Anderson, of Beaman, Iowa, speaks to the upcoming crop season, as well as the role cover crops play within his farming operation.
