Cover crop termination begins March 1
Termination/killdown of cover crop planted for the MACS cover crop program may begin March 1. If you are selecting the Delayed Termination option for any of your cover crop acres, you must report those acres to the Soil Conservation District office by April 15 so the district can verify the status of the cover crop. Fertilizer may be applied now to cover crop acres and manure may be applied after March 1. Any nutrients should be applied according to your current Nutrient Management plan for 2020.
