Illinois Cover Crop On-Farm Network Monthly Calls

For our November call, we will be joined by Etienne Herrick from the University of Michigan School for Environment and Sustainability. Etienne will discuss a citizen science approach that studied how and why cover crop growth varies from farm to farm. Etienne will share the findings of the 2023 survey, lessons learned, and next steps.
