STEPHENSON COUNTY (WIFR) -- Stephenson County Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS); Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) and University of Illinois Extension will be hosting a Cover Crop Tour on Thursday April 4, 2013.

The tour will showcase 3 Stephenson County farms in the Winslow, Lena and Pearl City area where cover crops were installed with assistance from NRCS or SWCD. Each of the farms used different seed mixes, application methods and crop rotations.

You will get a chance to look at the cover crop and talk to each of the landowners. Agency representatives and seed representatives will be available at each of the farms to answer questions.
