Early planting of the cover crops increased by 4.3%. Overall Talbot farmers had a 73% implementation rate of what acres were signed up in the summer.
There were a total of 87 farmers that signed up for the traditional and harvest programs.
If you are participating in the commodity Cover Crop program please remember that you cannot add any organic sources of nitrogen before March 1st. Due to the mild winter weather, applying commercial fertilizer is permitted before March 1st.
Kill down date is March 1st for the State program. Within two weeks of the suppression of the Cover Crop, please certify with the Talbot SCD to determine the final cost-share payment.
