Farmers for Soil Health enrollment nears in Michigan

Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program technicians will soon start enrolling farmers in the Farmers for Soil Health partnership.

Michigan Corn’s Kristin Poley tells Brownfield existing statewide staff will help speed up access to the $1.3 million available for 2023 projects.

“And that is funding that includes financial assistance and technical assistance for cover crops in corn and soybean rotations all across the entire state,” she explains.

Poley is overseeing the program in Michigan and says research has found it can take up to five years for cover crops to provide benefits.
