Additional cover crop planting extension
MDA has extended the final planting date for cover crop acres until December 1 due to wet weather conditions in parts of the state. There are limitations on these acres planted after November 12. The only eligible crops are wheat, speltz, rye, and triticale. The only approved planting methods are no-till, broadcast with light, miminum, or vertical tillage, and conventional. In addition, any acres planted during this extension may not be terminated prior to May 1, 2021 and are only eligible for the $40/are base payment. Contact the district office with any questions.
