Description

The 2019 WI Cover Crop Conference will be a statewide event for farmers to hear from cover crop experts and experienced farmers about how to successfully integrate cover crops into Wisconsin’s unique cropping rotations and climate. Last year's conference was a huge success with over 400 attendees!
