Michigan Cover Crops

The Cover Crops Program at the Michigan State University Extension's Agriculture and Agri-business Institute focuses on integrating cover crops into Michigan field crop systems. Our goal is to make information from research readily available so farmers can make better decisions about using cover crops on their farms. Use the links above to explore information on growing cover crops successfully on your farm.
