Farmers, the academic community, ag professionals and other cover crop enthusiasts are invited to join us for the first Northeast Cover Crops Council-sponsored event hosted at Cornell University.  Concurrent sessions will include soil health, pest suppression, cover crop mixtures, and cover crop breeding efforts.  Breakouts will target individual cropping systems and other issues including, grain, forage, vegetables, and equipment.  Participants will have the opportunity to present their work in a Posters & Pints session.  This meeting will be a great opportunity to meet and visit with cover crop experts and students researching cover crops to help you find the answers you seek.  The second day will include a field tour of the latest cover crop research and demonstrations at the USDA NRCS Big Flats Plant Materials Center.  Hope you can join us!
