No-till and Cover Crop Implementation Online Education Program

North Jersey RC&D, in partnership with New Jersey Audubon and Stroud Water Research Center, has created a comprehensive No-till and Cover Crop Online Education Program.



We are inviting public, private, and non-profit agricultural service providers to participate in a five-part, interactive, webinar training series emphasizing no-till and cover crop implementation that will train agricultural service providers to better support farmers who are preparing for and implementing in-field soil health practices Topics include:

  • Steps farmers should take to prepare for no-till

  • Different types of no-till equipment and attachments

  • Nutrient management in a no-till setting

  • Practical cover crop seed selection tips

  • Cover crop application methods for every crop system

  • Cover crop termination techniques

Webinars will occur once a week for five weeks during August, and early September from 9:00 to 10:30 am.  To keep group sizes small and encourage a more regional dialog, each workshop will be offered three times each week. Each day of the week will emphasize a different region with different soils, climate, and crops.   Participants will be eligible for Maryland and Pennsylvania Nutrient Management CECs and Certified Crop Advisor CEUs*. In addition, all participants will receive a copy of the newly released book, “A practical Guide to No-till and Cover Crop.” This program is being offered free of charge thanks to the generous support of the USDA Northeast Sustainable Agriculture, Research and Development (SARE) Grant. Comprehensive course manual included. Space is limited. Sign up today! To learn more and sign up, visit https://www.northjerseyrcd.org/train
