What will you learn?
Participate in this webinar to learn how the practice of integrating cover crops and grazing into a dryland cropping system can impact soil health, soil moisture, and farming system economics. This webinar will share lessons learned through on-farm and research station studies evaluating the potential for grazed cover crops to support soil health and economic outcomes of dryland farming systems. We will share soil health, soil moisture, forage production, animal performance, yield, and economic outcomes from spring-planted cover crops on farmer’s fields in Colorado, Kansas and Nebraska, as well as research results from the HB Ranch field station in Kansas. In particular, we will compare the soil health and economic outcomes of fallow, cover crop, and grazed cover crop treatments. Learn more…
