NRCS extends winter hardy cover crop seeding deadline to Oct. 31
DES MOINES — Because of the late harvest, Iowa Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is granting farmers a two-week extension for seeding winter hardy cover crops.
“Farmers may still be eligible for USDA financial assistance if they seed their winter hardy cover crops like winter rye, winter triticale and winter wheat by Oct. 31,” said State Agronomist Barb Stewart.
The original deadline was Oct. 15. The extension does not apply to oats or radishes.
