Harvest season is a busy time. There is so much for a grower to organize, manage and stay on top of that adding one more thing during the season — like seeding cover crops — may seem way too daunting. However, there are other seeding options for growers to consider that don’t require any additional physical labor on the grower’s part, such as aerial seeding.
Aerial seeding is an ideal choice for getting cover crops seeded when time is of the essence, or when ground conditions are less than ideal for equipment, like when soil is wet. Aerial seeding still provides the same flexibility as other methods for planting cover crop mixes, as the method can be used to seed multiple cover crop species at once.
Adam Kramer, pictured, grower and Certified Crop Advisor from Prairie du Chien, Wis., will discuss how aerial application can be an economical choice at the online 2020 National Cover Crop Summit: Fall Edition. Kramer’s presentation will share his experiences working with growers who are aerial seeding and what growers should know to help make aerial seeding successful in their operations.
The National Cover Crop Summit: Fall Edition will be held Nov. 17-18, 2020, through an interactive and educational online format that allows attendees to watch pre-recorded on-demand sessions at their convenience. It features a diverse learning program of speakers addressing cover crop topics including aerial seeding, feeding livestock cover crops through the winter, incorporating cover crops into crop rotations, and more.
