If you planted a cover crop this fall, you should enroll in Farmers for Soil Health. FSH is a “climate smart commodities partnership” put on by the National Corn Growers Association, Pork Checkoff, and Soy Checkoff. It provides technical and financial assistance to farmers planting cover crops in 20 states (including Ohio).
This year they are allowing you to retroactively enroll acres based on cover crops you have already planted. The deadline to register acres planted in 2023 is February 28, 2024. Then the registration for acres planted in 2024 will begin.
Farmers for Soil Health was designed by farmers, for farmers. The program has you at the front of its mind. There are dedicated technical advisors and industry experts who can help lead you through adopting a cover crop, find the best one for your land, and help you get started.
