Covering America from Coast to Coast Program
Through this project, we will work with farmers to utilize holistic management and soil health protocols to produce oats, rye, flax, buckwheat, and camelina.
In addition to growing the specialty grains and oilseeds, participating farmers must plant equal acreage of a multi-species cover crop or forage planting on the same operation, and implement two of the following practices:
> Reduced tillage or no-till
> Reduced N usage through a Nutrient Management Plan
> Minimum of a three-crop rotation
