Farming program to address idle acres, cover crops after flooding
Excessive rainfall, prolonged ponding, and flooded conditions of 2015 have resulted in many fields remaining unplanted and many acres of severely damaged or failed crops this season. These acres should be managed in ways to prevent soil degradation and to increase soil productivity for next year. The Farm Service Agency, Natural Resource Conservation Service and Purdue Extension have designed a program to assist producers and landowners with questions regarding soil regeneration strategies, cover crops and herbicide persistence.
