Nebraska farmers can learn about benefits of cover crops

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska farmers can learn more about the benefits of planting cover crops at a workshop later this month.

The workshop will be held April 14 at a farm in northeast Buffalo County near Gibbon.

Cover crops are planted between growing seasons to limit erosion and replenish nutrients in the soil, which can reduce the need for fertilizer.

The workshop will discuss how using cover crops affects soil moisture and soil structure.

Anyone interested in the workshop should contact Beth Hiatt at (308) 237-3118 or beth.hiatt(at)ne.usda.gov.
