Join SARE, CTIC and ASTA for a Discussion of the 2020 National Cover Crop Survey Data


Online Press Conference Wednesday, August 19, 10:00 am Eastern/9:00 am Central


Insight from 1,172 farmers across the U.S. shines a light on cover cropping trends, including deep dives into "planting green" into living cover crops, using cover crops for weed control, and the impact of cover crops on cash crop planting dates during the wet spring of 2019. This year's survey included strings of questions for both commodity/row crop growers and producers of horticulture crops.

On Wednesday, August 19 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern/9:00 a.m. Central, the data and 2020 National Cover Crop Survey report will be introduced to the press in a presentation and Q&A session. Click here to register for the press conference.

The survey was created and funded by the USDA Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE), Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC) and American Seed Trade Association (ASTA). Representatives of all three groups will participate in the press conference.

This is the groups' sixth national cover crop survey since 2012. Previous surveys in this series have been cited in academic papers, media and in congressional testimony. They are available on CTIC's website.
