Cover Crops for Prevented Planting- Café Talks

We are planning a series of Café Talks on cover crops in prevented planting situations.  These will be an excellent opportunity to meet with NDSU Specialists and Researchers to run through options and we will have insurance representatives there to provide input during the conversation.   Like all Café Talks, these will be a discussion of options for mixes based on next crop in rotation, soil type, herbicide residual, fertility amongst any other questions that come up.  No need to RSVP, just show up. 

Bring information on herbicide applications, fertility, next crop in rotation and goals so that we can customize plans.
