Cover Crop Starter Kit

RYE-D OR DIE

Trying cover crops 
doesn’t have to be complicated

Cover crops are the best conservation practice in the organic rich soils of the Midwest where nutrient loss, soil health, and climate change are concerns.

Still, there are barriers to cover crop adoption, including the decision fatigue associated with identifying the right combination of species, planting methods, herbicide treatments, and termination timing.

When you sign up for the free Rye-d or Die kit, you’ll get a straightforward guide to using cereal rye ahead of soybeans as well as information about coupons and incentive programs that can help protect your bottom line.
