Farming sometimes feels like working harder and harder to earn less and less. At least that’s how it feels when your precious soil is blowing or washing away into nearby streams. Cover crops, minimum tillage and no-till farming and other conservation tillage practices can make a big difference. These practices protect your soil and stop erosion when the harvest is over — and we can help you get started. Our technicians will sit down with you, roll up their sleeves, and answer your questions. When you are ready to get started, we can point you toward seeds, loaner equipment, and more. We aren’t selling anything!
When you plant cover crops and start no-till farming, you’re well on your way towards earning recognition in the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program, that’s MAEAP for short. Here’s what MAEAP is all about.
