Three Rivers staff annually installs signage on Route 17, 30, and 360 corridors to raise awareness and educate the public on the importance of cover crops within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. We feel cover crops are very important not only in our District, but throughout the state in reducing soil loss and recycling nutrients that are left in the soil profile from the previous crop.
Three Rivers SWCD provides cost share for farmers planting cover crops in an effort of improving soil health and water quality. Cost share helps offset some of the farmers cost.
Please give us a call today if you want to know more on cover crops and the benefits they provide!
