Using Conservation to Improve Farm Profitability – 60-Inch-Row Corn + Interseeded Cover Crops (#1 of 2 in Series)

Nathan and Sarah farm using in-field conservation practices that reduce soil loss, increase soil health, reduce inputs and provide forage for livestock. They also target edge-of-field conservation on marginal lands to provide water quality and wildlife benefits while improving return on investment on farmed acres. We’ll chat with Nathan twice over the course of the season to learn about conservation he’s using on his farm to increase profitability.

In part 1, Nathan will discuss planting corn in 60-inch rows with interseeded cover crops, and he’ll share the environmental and agronomic benefits he sees – or hopes to see – from the practice.
