Cover Crop Economics Decision Support Tool

What does cover cropping cost? What are the economic benefits? How do the costs and benefits change over time?  Have you been trying to figure out if cover crops are worth it financially?  Then check out this webinar with Missouri NRCS’ own Lauren Cartwright, Agricultural Economist, along with Bryon Kirwan, Illinois NRCS State Economist.  Lauren and Bryon created an easy to use and understand excel program for farmers.

The webinar will take place on January 22nd at 1 pm and will last for 60 minutes.  To join, log into

This webinar will provide a high level overview that focuses on the producer, uses a “partial budget” and short-term and long-term analyses. The presenters will run/demonstrate a cover crops decision support tool with a scenario showing the data input process and the tool outputs. Key variables will be changed to show how such changes impact the results.

This webinar is presented by the USDA NRCS East National Technology Support Center. Contact Holli Kuykendall, Ph.D., National Technology Specialist, for more information about this webinar.
