Wisconsin’s sign-up for cover crop rebates starts Monday

Wisconsin farmers can sign up for the state’s cover crop rebate program starting Monday.

The program uses 800-thousand dollars approved by the Legislature to reimburse farmers five dollars per acre on their 2023 crop insurance premiums for planting cover crops this year.  The funding is first-come first-serve and will cover the first 160-thousand acres of insured cropland.

The rebate application will be web-based and remain open until January 31, 2023.
