Upfield, the parent company for Country Crock spread and No-till on the Plains have partnered to provide a cover crop cost-share program for producers in eastern Kansas and the western most counties of Missouri. The program will provide $10 per acre reimbursement to producers to plant cover crops on acres previously not planted to covers.
Producers must provide USDA Form-578 information showing the acres have not been previously planted to covers. They will also be required to provide a receipt for seed purchase before the reimbursement will be provided.
Cover crops may be planted beginning in October of 2020 through September of 2021.
