Max Armstrong offers some insight on the value of cover crops.

Max Armstrong has been working with the Howard G. Buffett Foundation to look at the value, and payback, of cover crops. He offers some insight into how cover crops help based on the experience of one farmer, but his coverage has shown value in the use of this tool for erosion control, improved weed control, and nutrient management.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
