Cover Crops Project
The MMPA Cover Crop Project is a collaboration between MMPA, Unilever and Barry-Callebaut to demonstrate what farmers are doing for soil health and carbon sequestration through cover crops.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a cover crop is a crop generally recognized by agricultural experts as agronomically sound for the area for erosion control or other purposes related to conservation or soil improvement. Cover crops, which can include grasses, legumes, and forbs are used primarily for erosion control, soil health improvement, water quality improvement, and other conservation purposes.
