Get Paid for Planting a Cover Crop

Thanks to a grant from the Walton Family Foundation, the Arkansas Soybean Association is pleased to reimburse 10 producers up to $2400 each for planting a cover crop this fall.

The requirements are 80 acres, answer a short survey (and maybe a follow up one later), and submission of your invoice/receipt for the seed.

Complete this form to enter the program.

There is a lot of ongoing research on cover crops. The initial ROI is seen with reduced soil erosion, protection from wind damage, and easier management of pigweed populations. In time, soil biomass is built to increase soil infiltration, lessen soil compaction, and reduce irrigation timings. Committed cover crop farmers also benefit from fewer herbicide and insecticide treatments and requiring fewer soil nutrient applications.
