The National Center for Appropriate Technology and the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition will host an important national webinar on Thursday, Jan. 23, from 1-2:30 p.m. to discuss the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) recent efforts to assure greater uniformity and clarity on its policy related to farmers who currently grow cover crops or may grow them in the future.

The webinar will address the critical question that the new policy is designed to answer:

•When and how can cover crops be terminated without jeopardizing valuable crop insurance coverage of the cash crops grown with them? Cover crops and crop insurance -- what’s the connection?

This policy arose out of the concern that farmers planting cover crops could lose their eligibility for crop insurance coverage of the following crop. The new policy addresses this concern, using science-based cover crop management guidelines accepted across USDA agencies.

The webinar will feature speakers from the USDA task force that crafted the new cover crop termination policy, and there will be ample opportunity for farmers and other webinar participants to ask questions about how the policy will work on the ground.

The first half-hour will consist of presentations by the four panelists, with the remaining time allocated for a question-and-answer session.

The webinar is free and accessible by visiting http://bit.ly/1cmZz5Y.
