Winter hardy cover crop deadline extended to Nov. 15

Posted: Updated:

Iowa's Department of Agriculture says farmers participating in cost-share and financial assistance programs for winter-hardy cover crops now have until Nov. 15 to qualify for those programs.

The seeding date is extended because of the down harvests.

Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey says both corn and soybean harvests are behind the five-year average. 

An extension was given to farmers last year as well, following a late harvest.
