Get It Covered

Western SARE is conducting a cover crop survey

Get It Covered

The newly created Western Cover Crops Council aims to promote the successful use of cover crops in diverse agricultural systems. To help improve outreach and inform cover crop incentive programs to better serve stakeholders, it’s asking farmers and ranchers to share their perspectives. Whether they plant cover crops now, planted them in the past, or never planted them, every perspective is important!

The survey is being conducted by the University of Idaho, Oregon State University, and Boise State University, with funding from the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (SARE). It takes just 5–10 minutes. The survey is confidential, and responses cannot be linked to respondents. Take the survey, and you can enter a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card!
